Chef Jesus de la Torre Jr. was awarded the trophy for his “That Guy’s Burger.”

It was a guava-infused, cream cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped burger.

Yeah, it’s only a concoction a team from Miami Springs could ever envision and execute.

The event was hosted by cooking icon Rachael Ray at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach.

The all-star judging panel included Ayesha Curry, Emilio Estefan, Jill Martin, Rev Run and Adam Richman.
