Chipotle eXpress by PuckerButt Pepper Co. Pepper X should be familiar as the one-time hottest pepper in the world, the diabolical pepper that powered The Last Dab since bursting onto the scene in 2017. Bred by the famous (infamous?) mad scientist Smokin’ Ed Currie, Pepper X has a heat profile that’s akin to a knockout punch from a heavyweight champ, making this a scorcher of a #9 sauce in the Hot Ones Season 13 lineup. Smokin’ Ed brought new flavours to Pepper X with a smoky blend of chipotle peppers, lemon and honey, adding a friendly face to the monster. The earthy notes of the Pepper X are bolstered by the chipotles and the sweet and citrus notes help bring the whole thing to life. Chipotle eXpress Hot Sauce is amazing for short ribs and other stews, this flavour powerhouse will keep you warm all winter long.
