Taste the Tex-Mex Faceoff at Carl’s Jr. and Hardees

You guys, throw out that salad you packed for lunch and head on over to your nearest Carl’s Jr. or Hardees to try their new Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger!

The burger is a 1/3 or ½ pound charbroiled Black Angus beef patty topped with fire-roasted poblano peppers and onions, lettuce, tomato, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon, pepperjack cheese, and a spicy Sante Fe sauce. C’mon, buy us one.

While you’re daydreaming about that … you might also want to check out the sexy ad featuring Texan Elle Evans (from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video) and Mexico City native and Latina cover model Alejandra Guilmant.

The ladies star in an ad called “Borderball” in which the two go head to head in a Texas vs. Mexico volleyball game. With crowds cheering, the winner will decide whether the burger is more Tex or Mex. You can catch that ad nationally September 28.

In the meantime, try to snag one of those burgers and decide for yourselves.
