A Handy Chart That Ranks Popular Hot Sauces By Scoville Heat Units

If you're one of those people who likes to pile on the hot sauce until their mouth feels like it's literally on fire then the hot sauces on this chart created by Sriracha2Go are probably too tame for your fireproof tongue.

But if you like a little hot sauce now and then, and don't consider Sriracha or Tapatio to be too tame, then you'll enjoy the control this chart of Popular Hot Sauces Ranked By Scoville Heat Units (SHU) gives you over hotness levels at mealtime.

Looking for a little fire? Splash on the Cholula or Tabasco and savor the burn. Want some hot sauce flavor without too much spice? Reach for the Crystal hot sauce and savor the flavor instead!
