Paqui Carolina Reaper Tortilla Chip

Normally, you worry about eating the whole thing when you open a bag of chips. That won’t be a problem here. The Paqui Carolina Reaper Tortilla Chip is made using the Carolina Reaper Pepper, also known as the hottest chili pepper on Earth. Bred by “Smokin” Ed Currie β€” who also helped create the chip’s seasoning β€” the reaper has a heat rating of 1.57 million Scovilles, or over 78,000 times hotter than the hottest jalapeΓ±o you’ll find. Also joining the fray are ghost peppers and chipotle seasoning, making the chip so incredibly spicy that it’s sold one-at-a-time in its own coffin-shaped box.
