Here at Kitchn, we turn to editor-favorite Fly By Jing when we need instant flavor in our meals, whether it’s drizzling one of their trio of sauces on veggies or eggs or taking out a few frozen dumplings to liven up a bowl of soup or enjoy on their own. Each product is infused with traditional Sichuan ingredients, offering huge flavors from the umami-forward Zhong Sauce to the rich hot pot base. Possibly their most popular item is the Sichuan Chili Crisp, a versatile, crunchy, spicy condiment ready to spoon onto salmon, fried eggs, rice, or even ice cream!

Whether you’re already a chili crisp lover or you’re just always in pursuit of a new hot sauce, you’ll love the news we have to share. Fly By Jing has just launched an even hotter version of this sauce, dubbed the Xtra Spicy Chili Crisp. The $15 jar features the same crispy, numbing, and bold sensations of the original, but now it’s three times spicier and made with some of the hottest Chinese chilis around. And yet even with all that heat, Fly By Jing has carefully crafted the recipe to ensure that this new chili crisp will complement whatever you’re eating without overpowering it.

“Ever since our launch in 2018, we’ve heard the chorus of heat-enthusiasts everywhere calling for us to dial up the temperature. I’m so excited to finally bring that famous, near-hallucinogenic heat to the table with Xtra Spicy Chili Crisp, the newest addition to the Fly By Jing family!” says Jing Gao, founder and CEO of Fly By Jing. “It’s the same deep umami taste you know and love, now amped up in heat and ready to make you sweat. I think I might like it even more than the original!”

Just like the other Fly By Jing sauces, Xtra Spicy Chili Crisp contains 100 percent non-GMO peppers and is vegan, gluten free, and preservative free. It’s designed to be used like western hot sauces, versatile enough to be your new go-to condiment for turning up the heat and taste on whatever you’re eating. As for the original chili crisp, it’s so popular that it’s sold out a whopping five times, which is why we recommend you add the newer, spicier version to your cart ASAP before it’s gone. Launches this hot don’t stay in stock for long.
