I'm not quite sure what Fresco means, but the toppings on this sandwich is basically the Ghost Pepper Fries without the fries. Get this for a limited time at Wendy's or forever at home.
  • 4oz Chicken Breast
  • Buttermilk
  • Red Hot (any hot sauce)
  • Whole Wheat Roll
  • Pepper Jack Cheese
  • Red Onions
  • Ghost Pepper Sauce
  • Diced Jalapeños
  • Cheese Sauce
Seasoned Flour Mixture
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp Salt & Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
Ghost Pepper Sauce
  • 2 Ghost Peppers
  • ½ Cup Mayonnaise
  • ¼ Cup Sriracha
  • 2 Tbsp Relish
  • 1 Tbsp Hot Sauce
Cheese Sauce
  • 6 Oz Velveta Cheese
  • ½ Cup Cheddar
  • ½ Cup Milk
  • Some Dice Jalapenos (optional)
  1. Pour Buttermilk and hot sauce into a pan to soak your chicken in.
  2. Mix your seasoned flour into another pan.
  3. Slice chicken thin if not already purchased that way and soak it in your buttermilk for a few hours in the refrigerator.
  4. After tossing your chicken into the flour and buttermilk a few times to get a nice thick coat you can either fry right away or get em even more crispy by freezing them overnight. You have to make a huge commitment here to be able to wait a full day to eat though.
  5. At your convenience, deep fry for 4-5 minutes at 365°F.
  6. Grill up your bun, dice some jalapenos, slice some red onions and prepare your ghost pepper & cheese sauce all measurements and ingredients listed above.
  7. Build your Jalapeno Fresco sandwich with the wheat roll, chicken, pepper jack cheese, cheese sauce jalapenos, red onions and ghost pepper sauce.
  8. Build your traditional spicy chicken sandwich with a white roll, mayonnaise, chicken, lettuce and tomato.
