Cooking with Fire: Diablo Sandwich with the Lombard Fire Department

This morning we're Cooking with Fire at the Lombard Fire Department making firefighter Bob Hopper's Diablo Sandwich.

Here's the recipe:


  • 4-5 lbs ground beef browned with fajita seasoning
  • 1 lb chopped bacon cooked
  • Taco seasoning with ground chipotle pepper added
  • 30 oz diced chile tomatoes drained
  • 5 oz chipotle tabasco
  • 16 oz corn
  • 2 cups Italian bread crumbs

Place on hamburger or slider bun. Top with creamy ranch dressing and shredded pepper jack cheese.

Of course, this sandwich has to be accompanied with a Dr. Pepper.
