In a Coup Against the McSkillet, a Hispanic Chef Latinizes the Burger

If you thought Latinos were going to stay on the sidelines after McDonald’s made the bold step to put its Big Mac on a tortilla, you were plain wrong.

In an unprecedented, culinary vindictive coup, Hispanics (in Miami, where else?) are striking back by launching the Latin Burger Truck, a kitchen on wheels featuring the $5.75 Latin Burger, a “blend of ground chuck, chorizo and sirloin, topped with melted Oaxaca cheese, caramelized onions and red-pepper mayo,” so that you, too, will be able to boost your cholesterol levels á la Latin style.

The Latin Burger on wheels is the brainchild of Ingrid Hoffman, the Colombia-born host of Simply Delicioso, a Food Network cooking show that (I hope) teaches us a little more than adding chorizo on American junk food.
