Down Mexico way lies Acapulco, a sun-drenched town nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains. A beach resort getaway is exactly what we had in mind when we came up with this burger. When you top this juicy burger with melty Chihuahua cheese, fresh pico de gallo, and zesty chipotle mayo, you'll see how easy and delicious summertime dinner can be.
Tip: How to get hip to the sticks? Slice a small piece off your tater so you have something to stand it on. Then make 1/4" slices, moving front to back and down. Those slices will be easy to cut into 1/4" sticks.
