The husband + wife team behind Señor Lechuga specializes in uniquely seasoned hot sauces that bring some major heat.
This .718 hot sauce is a small-batch, spice-forward, mouth-watering sauce that's rich with guajillo and pasilla peppers, black lime, fiery ghost peppers and sweet paprika. It has a good lingering heat (we give it a 7/10 on the spicy scale), and it's zesty and robust. The spiciness is matched by the natural sweetness from warming spices: royal cinnamon, buffalo ginger and sweet pepper paprika.
.718 hot sauce has no added sugar, preservatives, emulsifying agents, animal products, artificial flavors or coloring — it's nothing but flavor.
And now, a fun fact: Señor Lechuga .718 hot sauce was created for Season 16 of the popular YouTube show "Hot Ones," in which celebrity guests eat progressively spicier wings. True story.

718 Hot Sauce
White fire of ghost peppers tempered by black lime. Smoky body of adobo. Wish it had a one-drop pour spout.
This sauce is NOT for the faint of heart! The heat takes a few seconds before presenting its full performance, and there is long, slow "warmth." This is not a sauce that is so intense, it's overwhelming. However, it you are expecting Tabasco kindness, forget it! This offers depth, richness, and a multi-faceted taste experience!
Interesting good taste
It was a nice medium hot to my palate. You felt the burn but did not linger.
Complex + HOT
This sauce is very interesting - a bit smoky and herbaceous, with a bit of a mole vibe. It's not at all sweet, without being bitter. I like it on stir fry in particular, though I've found it to be slightly less versatile for my purposes than a sweet or vinegary sauce.
Very bright in flavor and hot! If you like hot, Hot Sauce, you will love this!
