Vegan Pepper Belly Burger

Updated: Jul 26, 2020

What happens when you can't decide between a Pepper Belly and Burger? You make this!

Don't feel bad if you don't know what a Pepper Belly is. I didn't know until a few years ago, but am I glad I found out! It's essentially a bag of Fritos (which are accidentally vegan) filled with chili, cheese, onions, sour cream and whatever else you wanna put in there!

For this burger I kept it pretty simple and added the traditional toppings plus a little cilantro. If having chips on a burger sounds weird to you, I urge you to try it! The crunchy, salty goodness pairs well with everything else, I swear it!

Makes 1 Burger

  • 4 oz patty of plant-based meat

  • 1 slice vegan cheese

  • 1/4 cup vegan cheese shreds

  • 1/4 cup chili (homemade or canned is fine)

  • 1/3 cup Fritos chips

  • 2 Tbsp vegan sour cream

  • 1 Tbsp chopped onion

  • 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro

  • 1 hamburger bun


  1. Prep your veggies, chop onions and cilantro.

  2. Heat up chili in a pot and keep warm.

  3. Grill buns in a bit of oil or vegan butter until golden brown. Set aside. ⁣⁣⁣

  4. Press your burger patty so it matches the circumference of your buns. Season with salt and pepper. Then over medium high heat, grill on each side for 3-4 minutes. ⁣⁣⁣

  5. After you flip the patty, add a slice of cheese and cover with a melting dome after adding a tablespoon of water to pan. The steam from the water will help melt the cheese.

  6. Once Cheese is melted, assemble as follows; burger patty, chili, cheese shreds, onions, cilantro, Fritos, sour cream on top bun!

  7. ENJOY!
