Buffalo Chicken Sandwich w/ Ghost Pepper Ranch

  • Save

So this is one of my last few post of “extreme” heats because 1 I’ve been told to cut it out here at home because nobody can hang and 2. I really don’t even gravitate towards hot peppers or really much spice in the winter. Which is odd because you’d think if you’re cold you’d like to warm up but no. I like a more wholesome well rounded heat then rings of fire. 3. Hot peppers don’t grow well in winter but that’s not really a factor since they freeze incredibly. So for this sandwich I upped the ante to give my classic buffalo some kick. The ghost pepper was incredibly tolerable and super flavorful! If you can stand the heat try this ranch out here. But try this out and let me know what you think!

  1. Thank you!! I just got into the heavier heat peppers. Ranch has always been perfect to start and go from there. Also, I can only imagine what it’s like to even be near a dehydrator full of ghost peppers. I’m coughing just thinking about it!

  2. Nice use of the reaper. I just harvested some ghost peppers and dried them. I plan on playing with different sauces. Thanks for giving me some ideas!
