It wasn't quite that, however, because while the Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken does have some heat to it, the sauce did not trigger any bodily discharges. Call me crazy, but it's a good thing the full power of the ghost pepper is not being unleashed—that or Wendy's isn't really using them at all. Which leads us to the jalapeños: They're so mild that they could be mistaken for garden-variety green peppers. Still, the sauce packs a subtle chipotle flavor that has a nice balance with the melted cheese, onions, and breaded chicken. And let me be clear: The sandwich has the kind of heat that sits on the back of your tongue, begging for more gulps of soda. It's ever-present without being overwhelming.
