You could call Texas Motor Speedway's newest concession item a "Frito burrito," and it is. But that doesn't get to the heart-stopping point of this new wrap: It's all about the bacon.
The Burro Grande, as chef Lincoln Engstrom calls it, is Texas Motor Speedway's latest concession item at Hawg Heaven. That's the stand that sells bacon-centric race-day foods, and NASCAR fans seem to love it. The Burro Grande will be for sale at O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 weekend, April 7, 8 and 9, at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. Find details about the races here.
The Burro Grande has three layers of bacon: first in the pork carnitas dotted with pecan-wood-smoked bacon; then in the bacon-jalapeno ranch beans; and again in the squirt of bacon-avocado crema on top. (Also stuffed inside that burrito are tomato-cilantro rice, cheese, pickled red onion and Fritos.)
This burrito costs $11 and is available at stand 405 inside gate 4.
If you're hog wild for bacon-related food, the Hawg Heaven stand has a gluttonous history. Since 2013, Texas Motor Speeway has unveiled a new, often surprising Hawg Heaven item at major races. The racetrack has served bacon-beer milkshakes and a bacon-doughnut ice cream sundaes. We've said it before: What will they think of next?
