What is Fuegorita?

Fuegorita is the hotter, more flavorful alternative to crushed red pepper. Our all-natural dry hot pepper blend is perfect for adding heat when cooking or on top of any prepared meal.

How hot is Fuegorita?

Make no mistake about it, Fuegorita is hot! But our goal isn’t necessarily to singe your taste buds – unless that’s what you want, of course. A little Fuegorita goes a long way and you can control how much heat is right for you simply by how much you add to your food.

What peppers do you use to make Fuegorita?

Our secret formula is made from a selection of the hottest peppers in the world. Although we don’t reveal what peppers are used for making Fuegorita, what we can tell you is we tested dozens of combinations before landing on the perfect blend, which strikes a delicate balance between heat you can feel and flavor you can taste.

Are there any other ingredients used in making Fuegorita?

There’s no need to mask great flavor. We don’t add any anything to Fuegorita, so all you get is our all-natural blend of the world’s hottest peppers, ground into the perfect texture for cooking or sprinkling on prepared food.

Where do Fuegorita peppers come from?

Currently we import our dry pepper from locations around the world where they grow best. It is our hope to someday grow our own peppers locally here in California.

Can I buy Fuegorita in stores?

Not yet, but we’re getting there! As much as we want to see Fuegorita on grocery spice racks everywhere, we’re still a start-up and our strategy is to start by selling direct to consumer to prove demand exists for our product.

Is Fuegorita available in restaurants?

It will be soon! We’re starting off by partnering with local pizza restaurants throughout California, inviting them to test Fuegorita with their customers and purchase food service versions of our bottles and delivery packets. For now, you can help by asking the manager at your favorite pizzeria to carry Fuegorita.

How do you make Fuegorita?

Very carefully! Seriously, if you didn’t know better, you’d think our pepper lab was a scene straight out of Breaking Bad! We use masks, gloves and goggles to protect ourselves when working with the hot peppers, which we grind in industrial size food processors, blend together in just the right proportion and bottle with our team in Ventura, California so we can send Fuegorita right to your door.

Are there any health benefits to using Fuegorita?

Many studies have cited the benefits of eating spicy food, and its impact on metabolism which leads to burning more calories. We look forward to exploring the health benefits of Fuegorita -- we would love nothing more than to make food more flavorful and spicy while also helping people stay more active and fit.
