Anyone remember Taco Town, the "Saturday Night Live" spoof that became a cult hit a couple years back?
Turns out Applebee's took the video as a brainstorming session. They recently introduced the Quesadilla Burger, which won one of the Center for Science in the Public Interest's coveted Xtreme Eater Awards this year. The Center explains:
Applebee’s inserts a bacon cheeseburger into a quesadilla. Two flour tortillas, two kinds of meat, two kinds of cheese, pico de gallo, lettuce, and a previously unknown condiment called Mexi-ranch sauce, plus fries, gives this monstrous marriage 1,820 calories, 46 grams of saturated fat, and 4,410 mg of sodium. Bonus heart-stopper: Applebee’s actually invites customers to top the fries with chili and still more cheese.
Of course, until Applebee's offers the option of wrapping the Quesadilla Burger in a large blueberry pancake, they'll still lag behind the genius of Taco Town. You can see the rest of the Center's awards here (pdf).
