In the brief but eventful history of Hot Ones—the show with hot questions and even hotter wings—host Sean Evans has stared down DJ Khaled and eaten the world’s hottest pepper without so much as flinching. Now, he’s being rewarded for the most thankless job in Internet show biz with his very own custom-made hot sauce.
We’re proud to announce the launch of Hot Ones Fiery Chipotle, a dream hot sauce that we cooked up in the lab with our friends Homeboy’s Hot Sauce and Heatonist.
Our challenge to Homeboy’s was simple: Create the perfect “turning point” sauce for the show—something with enough kick to get the blood flowing, and an incredible flavor that would make it versatile enough to replace Sriracha and Tabasco on your kitchen counter. He knocked it out the park, balancing chipotle-fueled smokiness with serious heat from habaneros and ghost peppers, plus a hint of sweetness from pineapple and lime.
The sauce debuted in the #5 wing slot on today’s new episode with former *NSYNC member Joey Fatone, who gave it his stamp of approval: “That’s actually pretty damn good!”
Hot Ones Fiery Chipotle is available for $12 a bottle, exclusively at Heatonist. Buy it online, or visit Heatonist’s storefront at 121 Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg.
