Bow Down: Carl's Jr. Is Reportedly Testing a Flamin' Hot Cheetos Burger

They already have the incredible weather and great tacos, but here's yet another reason to hate LA: they're the only ones with the Carl's Jr. Flamin' Hot Cheetos burger. A Wreckless Eating fan named James tipped the site off to the new item, which features the bright red Cheetos and a cheddar cheese sauce atop a beef patty. (Along with lettuce, tomato, and what looks like pepper Jack cheese.) Little else is known about the Thickburger for now, but if you come across it, you should order it without hesitation. Because remember: Flamin' Hot Cheetos are a health food.

Kristin Hunt is a Food/Drink staff writer for Thrillist, and wonders exactly how many Flamin' Hot Cheetos are allowed on each Thickburger. Follow her to educated guesses at @kristin_hunt.
