I agree that poblanos are sort of a grab bag. More times than not, they're gonna be mild. Sometimes you get a freak poblano that's as spicy as a jalapeno, if not spicier. Hate when that happens...

Why do you forbid the honey? I think it would be nice for the burger to be sweet and spicy...

I know I want the burger to have more dimensions than just "peppery"... maybe I'll add some bacon?
I have never heard the term "bullet pepper". I suggested the arbol as a means of adding heat without having to add a lot of additional peppers. Never mentioned adding so much that it takes over and is too hot to eat.

I think Flay is a SW flavor enthusiast, so I can't imagine him making a green chili sauce without cumin. As for the honey, I don't think it goes well with a savory burger sauce. At the end of the day, it is your sauce so make it as you wish.


If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!
