NEW ORLEANS (July 11, 2023) – Summer grilling and outdoor cooking season just got hotter with a new pepper collab by Louisiana Pepper Exchange and Boudreaux’s Backyard. Louisiana Pepper Exchange, a leading supplier of peppers for the hot sauce category, has teamed up with Boudreaux’s Backyard, a popular backyard chef influencer and food entrepreneur, for a new collaboration, the Red Limo Pepper Puree, is set to launch on July 11th.

Meet Louisiana Pepper Exchange: Disrupting the Pepper Industry with Flavor Innovation 

Louisiana Pepper Exchange is revolutionizing the way people experience heat and flavor in their food. Even if you’ve never tried a taste of Louisiana Pepper Exchange’s pepper purees, you’ve probably tasted their peppers. 

Louisiana Pepper Exchange is the leading supplier of peppers in the USA, making the base pepper ingredient for most hot sauces sold in the US. The company has been a behind-the-scenes purveyor to Tabasco and many other major hot sauce brands. Louisiana Pepper Exchange pepper mashes, each made from 20-plus different peppers, also go to companies that blend and package hot sauces for countless smaller brands. 

Other clients are large-scale food manufacturers that supply restaurants as well as a realm of fast food, full-service restaurant chains. 

They also bring that passion and knowledge to home chefs and restaurants around the country through a line of “pepper purees” that add flavor and spice to foods and drinks. But don’t call them hot sauces. 

“We have hot sauce customers around the country, and there’s a lot of affinity for Louisiana. They see Louisiana as the hot bed for hot sauce ,” said White. “But our pepper purees are intentionally not a hot sauce. They are an ingredient to make hot sauces and include in any dish or drink that you want to elevate through flavor, spice and some heat.”

The Pepper Partnership 

The pepper partnership started over a love of cooking and growing food companies. Chris White and Justin Boudreaux are both backyard chefs and food entrepreneurs in Louisiana. They enjoy hosting friends and family for backyard cooking, grilling and entertaining. 

“We started exploring unique peppers that would work well for Justin’s style of cooking. He’s an amazing chef,” says Chris White. “We invited Justin to the Louisiana Pepper Exchange headquarters in New Orleans to taste-test exclusive pepper varieties not yet released to the public.” 

“I chose Red Limo for its mid-level heat and citrus notes,” says Justin Boudreaux. “I took some home to my backyard kitchen and it worked incredibly well for summer recipes I was creating. Red Limo definitely kicked up the flavor of my dishes, drinks and desserts.”

The two culinary entrepreneurs joined up again in Chris’s backyard for a Red Limo dinner, created by Justin. “Wow, his menu blew us away,” shares Chris. “He kept pulling out magical creations using the Red Limo. Seafood Orzo, Fish Tacos, Watermelon Margarita and Key Lime Pie. It was incredible.”

“And everything tasted so much better with some of the Red Limo,” added Justin. “This is my new summer-time grilling and cooking secret ingredient!”

vibrant. fruity. bold.

We teamed up with backyard chef Justin Boudreaux of Boudreaux's Backyard to produce a VERY limited release of a hard-to-find pepper variety, Red Limo.

The Red Limo is prized for its unique flavor. It is a spicy South American chili pepper with a bold red skin and fruity flavor.

Red Limo has a fruity, berry-like flavor. It is medium in heat level, but it does not leave your mouth burning. 

You don't want to miss this incredible and exclusive pepper puree. 

One spoonful is roughly equal to one pepper - and it's easy to use. Just stir it in - it's ready to use!

  • Fresh, real Red Limo flavor – more flavor than dehydrated and powdered seasonings.
  • Easy and convenient flavor - No more chopping peppers! If you like the convenience of minced garlic, you will love our pepper puree!
  • Only two, all natural ingredients – Red Limo peppers and a pinch of salt!
  • Simple conversion - 1-3 teaspoons of puree replaces 1 full pepper
  • Natural, zero calorie, gluten free
  • Great to add flavor and spice to any dish, dip, dressing. 
  • Perfect pairing: Meats, Burgers, Chicken, Fruits. Check out our recipes for inspiration!
