Chipotle Carne Seca (Hot Picante) Beef Jerky is a hot and spicy jerky. It’s made of beef and made by the good people at Old Trapper. When you open the bag, the peppers and spices are quite noticeable. It smells intense but the flavor is a little more muted than what I was expecting. One piece isn’t that hot, but two pieces make you start to sweat a little bit, and three pieces will make you run for a glass of water. The spiciness creeps up on you and it lingers on your tongue for a few minutes. I was hoping that it would be insanely hot and it’s not, but it’s still pretty hot. Each piece of jerky is nice cut, not too thick and not too thin. Some pieces were dry and crumbly so it loses a few brownie points for that, but all in all, this is a good jerky.
