Culver's Launches Recipe Contest and 3 Pepper Chipotle ButterBurger

Culver's, the blue-roofed home of the ButterBurger, is spicing up summer with the launch of a 3 Pepper Chipotle ButterBurger and an Ultimate ButterBurger Build-Off.

While the Wisconsin-based chain has been shy about venturing into the ring of spicy food, they've come out swingin' with the 3 Pepper Chipotle ButterBurger. The three-pepper triple-threat -- slices of jalapeño peppers, chipotle-spiced mayo, and habanero-spiced cheese -- can be had as a ButterBurger or a chicken sandwich. I would have enjoyed a bit more burn factor (next time I'll ask for an added dose of jalapeños) on my burger, but overall the spicy bite satisfied. The must-try side: Chipotle Cheese Curds. A successful spin-off of Culver's already delicious fried cheese curds, these crispy fire balls release the heat immediately upon impact. So good.

Now that you're all fired up, why not enter Culver's Ultimate ButterBurger Build Off?

Start with a ButterBurger and a bevy of yes-vote friends, then add your own ingredients to create the next Culver's masterpiece. If your submitted idea wins, you'll get an all-expenses-paid trip to hang out in Culver's test kitchens in Sauk City, Wisconsin.

Huh? An all-expenses-paid trip to the Culver's test kitchens in Sauk City, Wisconsin? Yeah, that's what I said. But working with the restaurant's founders and executive chef to bring your ButterBurger creation to their specials menu means place in fast-food history secured. Plus, you'll get to stay in the Wisconsin Dells, where there are more water slides per square mile than you can shake a custard spoon at.
