Whether tailgating at a football game, a campfire surrounded by friends and family, or just about anytime else, who doesn’t love a hot bowl of chili? Everyone and their mother has “the best” chili recipe, but we think these three hot sauces added to any blend will knockout the competition with both heat and flavor.
We just love the hint of chipotle smokiness this hot sauce brings to the table. That’s not all though, extreme heat comes in from Carolina Reaper powder and not to mention ultra hot Scotch Bonnets and Ghost Peppers. Not nuanced enough for you? How about throwing in hints of maple syrup and citrus for the ultimate balance. Splash this in your next chili and leave your friends and family speechless.
If chili is in its name, we had to include this, right? This is our absolute favorite overall hot sauce and time and time again this sauce finds its way into any bowl of chili we make. Don’t let the name scare you, this sauce is not as hot as you would be led on to be. You won’t die from its medium heat, but you might just die from how amazing its flavor is. A nice sweet heat with honey and a hint of brown sugar, mixed in with some cayenne and Cajun seasonings. An absolute must regardless of chili style.
If you’re looking just for pure heat to be added to your chili, there’s no better option than Extreme Karma. With its unique butternut squash base, your chili won’t drown in vinegar. Instead, Ghost and Scorpion Peppers will light up your tongue with flavor and give any boring chili a swift kick in the behind that will win over even the pickiest chili fanatic.
