My love of hot & spicy foods comes from a long line of Texans before me. It was great having Kerry Stessel of Hot Line Pepper Products on Chefs Coast to Coast to talk about his passion for all things hot and how many peppers he's tasted. This Houston-based, family-owned company uses all-natural products to create quality, gourmet, custom-blended hot sauces. Owner and CCO (Chief Chili Officer) of Hot Line Pepper Products, Kerry Stessel, remembers spending a vast amount of time in the kitchen with his mother and grandparents. His favorite? Good old-fashioned comfort dishes. Tune in to hear the whole episode!
Kerry was more than happy to share a favorite recipe with us this week: Hatchanero Burgers.
- 1 lb fresh ground chuck or the blend of choice
- Make patties, season with fresh cracked Tellicherry black pepper, garlic powder and lightly with kosher salt, then grill. When burgers are cooked lightly finish with some applewood smoked salt on the tops.
- Put patty on butter grilled or toasted bun and top burger with sauteed yellow onions and sauteed thin sliced jalapenos or habaneros, pepper jack cheese or a white cheddar works well and HLPP Hatchanero.
- Add lettuce, tomato, bacon etc.
