No chili fan in their right mind is going to think of what I served up at the 2019 Bartels H-D Chili Cook-Off as a legit chili. That’s fine. I make variants like this for the folks in their wrong mind, like myself.
I’ve always loved teriyaki burgers like the Banzai Burger at Red Robin. Their take is a little watered down compared to this version, which uses CaJohn’s Black Garlic Sauce, nanami togarashi seasoning, and Hawaiian sea salt and King’s Hawaiian burger buns to really stand out. Note that the slaw requires advance preparation.
