Red Robbin Adds Ghost Pepper Inspired Burgers
If you like spicy then “Red Robin” is your place, the chain restaurant is the first in the nation to add dishes featuring the notorious ghost pepper.
Red Robin’s “Fiery Ghost Style” burger is not only topped with a sauce made from the super hot pepper but also includes fresh-cut jalapenos, fried jalapenos and spicy pepper jack cheese.
If you want to take it down a couple notches, you can go for the also new “Cry Baby Style” burger which features crispy onion straws tossed in a Sriracha dry seasoning, onions sauteed in Cholula Hot Sauce, pepper jack cheese and ghost pepper ketchup.
“The culinary world has really embraced the chile pepper in a number of ways across the American dining landscape,” said Dave Woolley, executive chef with Red Robin. “Our most adventurous guests will love how the Fiery Ghost Style tests the extreme limits of their taste buds, while the Cry Baby Style appeals to a wide-variety of flavor preferences, taking a more mild approach to the flavor of chiles and infusing both Latin American and Thai culinary influences.”
The ghost pepper is estimated to range between 855,000 to 1,000,000+ Scoville heat units. To put that in perspective, a typical jalapeno pepper falls between 3,500 to 8,000 Scoville heat units.
