PRODUCT: Hot Pickle Chips & Turkey Burger

Does hot weather beg for hot pickles?

Rick’s Picks, our favorite pickle-maker (read the review), has launched Hotties, crinkle-cut spicy pickle chips spiced with Thai sriracha sauce* and habanero.

*Sriracha sauce is a dipping sauce made of hot red chiles, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. It is named after the coastal city of Si Racha on the Sea of Thailand, where it was first produced and served at seafood restaurants.

Use Hotties hot pickle chips anywhere you’d use pickle chips. Add a bit of heat to burgers, sandwiches, eggs and snacks with these little missiles of mild/moderate heat. Toss them into green salads for a surprise. Garnish deviled eggs.

Hotties are healthy, too: They’re low in sodium (105mg/ounce), low in calories (12 calories/ounce) and gluten-free; there is a small amount of sugar. Pickles by nature have no fat or cholesterol.

A 24-ounce jar is $7.99 at fine retailers and at RicksPicksNYC.com.

Rick’s suggests that you try them with this lowfat turkey burger (feel free to substitute beef):

  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted and ground

  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

    Preparation

    1. TOAST cumin and coriander seeds (you can combine them in the pan).

    4. COOK 4 minutes per side and cover with foil as you cook.

    5. OPTIONAL: TOAST buns while burgers are cooking on their second side.

    6. ASSEMBLE the burgers with Hotties and optional lettuce, tomato and onion slices.
