Wanna turn up the heat? Naturally.

Salsarita’s and the PuckerButt Pepper Company have collaborated to bring the world’s hottest burrito, the “BurHEATo”, to Columbia. It is available now until Sept. 22. The fiery food item contains grilled chicken, black beans, rice, Pueblo Corn Salsa, tomatoes, cilantro and a single teaspoon of Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper pepper mash. The Guinness Book of World Records dubbed the Carolina Reaper the world’s hottest pepper late last year, when it eclipsed the Australian-grown Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper.

If you’re brave enough to try it, be sure to post a video of your conquest on social media and tag @Salsaritas with a #WorldsHottestBurrito hashtag to receive a free, limited edition t-shirt. Past submissions are viewable on the Salsaritas Twitter page.

Good night, and good luck.
