What is it?
The Cholula Buttery Jack features a double dose of the hot sauce, which I hope isn’t applied straight from an actual Cholula bottle with a drip top. Because that seems inefficient in a fast food kitchen where speed is important.
Along with the Cholula, the burger also has a 1/4 lb beef patty, garlic herb butter, lettuce, tomato, pepper jack cheese, and crispy jalapeños on a gourmet bun.
How is it?
With all its ingredients and flavors, I can’t help but think the Cholula Buttery Jack tastes like I’m eating a taco in a bun. It’s got ground beef, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapeños, and hot sauce. That’s taco filling.
While I could taste the popular hot sauce, the garlic in the butter, crispy jalapeños, and tomatoes elevate the condiment’s flavor. Those enhancements make this burger taste great. Sure it tastes like a taco, but I love tacos too and I like that it tastes the way it does.
Is there anything else I need to know?
Cholula isn’t too spicy to begin with and the crispy jalapeños are as hot as the sauce, so when combined it’s not overly spicy. There’s a tinkling of heat, but I didn’t feel the need to chug a Jack in the Box Oreo Shake or even water to temper any angry taste buds.
The lettuce that came with my burger was mostly green, which was surprising. The crispy jalapeños do add a slight crunch and make this burger a little messy since they easily fall out. I’m not sure my burger got pepper jack cheese, because it doesn’t look like it, but whatever came with mine added a nice creaminess.
If you visit the Cholula website, it recommends adding it to burgers. If you’re visiting this website, I’m recommending this burger with Cholula sauce added.
