Popeyes Megan Thee Stallion Hottie Sauce
By Todd Wilbur
In a 2021 collaboration with female rap artist Megan Thee Stallion, Popeyes created a popular dipping sauce with a feisty kick for dunking your nuggets and strips, or for slathering over a crispy chicken sandwich. The chicken chain’s limited edition Hottie Sauce is a sweet-and-sour combo with a base of tangy cayenne pepper sauce. It’s sweetened with sugar, corn syrup, and honey and freckled with delicious Aleppo peppers. The sauce is filled with big flavor and appears to be a huge success for the chain since they have been running out of it at some locations.
This recipe is easy, so you’ll have no trouble being thee cloner of over one cup of this spirited sauce just as soon as you get your hands on some tasty dried Aleppo pepper flakes, which you can find online
When I went back to Popeyes a week later to load up on more sauce, they informed that it was sold out. So, if you like to use this sauce on your crispy chicken, you may really need this recipe. But don't stop there, you can also make a homemade version of Popeye's Chicken Sandwich here.
