To say this task has been a challenge is an understatement. It was fun, but a challenge for sure. If asked again, would I do this challenge all over again? You bet. I like to develop recipes, that is what I mainly do with my food blog, and when there is a restriction or limitation of some sort associated with developing a recipe, it makes it even more exciting. So yes I would do this challenge all over again.

I was really pleased, happy and excited that I was asked to participate in this 10 Tabasco ingredient challenge. I actually think my husband was most excited because he uses Tabasco like it is water. I am serious, he loves anything spicy…the spicier the better!

When I told him I had to come up with 5 recipes using Tabasco, he was just over the moon.

Anyhow, these Spicy chicken burgers where out of this world. I decided to post this recipe first because I was really pleasantly surprised at how moist, tasty and easy they were to make. I actually wished I had doubled the batch and froze some because they were really good. If you get to make them I suggest that you double the batch, you won’t regret it.

I kept the amount of Tabasco on the medium side making the Spicy chicken burgers slightly spicy, however you can go ahead and use more for the extra heat. My husband of course pour even more Tabasco on his burger but the kids just enjoyed them as is.

I leave you with this amazing tasty and easy Spicy chicken burgers. I hope you get to make them, if you do, let me know how you like them.
