It’s not the hottest hot sauce in the world. If you’re tired of the mild hit of Sriracha and ready to take a step up to genuinely hot sauces, though, you might want to give the Hot Ones Fiery Chipotle a try.
Developed by Homeboy’s Hot Sauce, it’s a custom flavor created for First We Feast’s online show, Hot Ones. To the unfamiliar, the show has host Sean Evans interviewing celebrities while eating 10 chicken wings apiece, each one covered in different hot sauces of rising Scoville heat ratings. They start off with the ever-popular Sriracha and end with a couple of condiments in the six-figure Scoville scale, with this custom hot sauce coming in right in the middle (it’s the fifth hottest in the current lineup).
According to First We Feast, the Hot Ones Fiery Chipotle is their “turning point” sauce for the show – the one that gives enough of a kick to let guests know things are getting serious in the heat department. It’s made from smoky chipotle, sweet pineapple, and lime, with a mix of ghost peppers and habanero peppers providing the necessary heat to scorch your tongue during consumption. Each bottle is handmade in small batches using fresh, natural ingredients.
Available exclusively from Heatonist, the Hot Ones Fiery Chipotle is priced at $12 a bottle.
