20 Ways to Eat Sriracha:

Sriracha: a beautiful combination of sun-dried chili peppers, garlic, vinegar, and touches of salt and sugar. Its spicy yet versatile flavor just may be the finishing touch that you need. Given that it's so versatile, sriracha goes well with just about any dish without overpowering it. I've just started using this sauce, and I can't get enough. I love it. In fact, everyone seems to be going crazy over it lately. Even Lay's Potato Chips have jumped on the bandwagon. Don't worry if you're a little late to the party...I've compiled a list of 20 Ways to Eat Sriracha. It's delicious. Here it is:


1. On pizza - use as much as you want. :)

2. In burritos or tacos - just a drop of sriracha goes a long way with flavor, but feel free to load it up anyways.

3. On potato chips - Lay's does it.

4. On tortilla chips - mix 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of sriracha with 1 cup of salsa for an added kick.

5. As a salad dressing - mix 1 teaspoon sriracha with 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and a touch of salt for a yummy dressing.

Substitute it for the hot sauce in this recipe.

6. On cauliflower or tempeh wings - sriracha = a great wing sauce.

7. In bloody marys - I always love a spicy bloody mary.

8. On fries  or in hash browns - because sometimes ketchup and hot sauce get boring.

9. In a sandwich.

10. On sushi - swirl it on your sushi with wasabi, and you'll have all different kinds of heat going on.

11. In pasta sauce - add a few drops of sriracha to tomato sauce or vegan alfredo to give it a surprising yet delicious flavor.

12. In desserts - a dab or two of sriracha would go a long way in dark chocolate brownies or cupcakes. (Recipe to follow).

13. In barbecue sauce - um...yes please! Mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of sriracha in with 1/2 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce. Boom!

14. With garlic on roasted veggies - sriracha + garlic = love.

15. As a glaze/ in reductions - add a drop or two of sriracha while you're making a balsamic glaze for a touch of heat.

16. On veggie dogs and veggie burgers - Vegan Boca Burgers with Sriracha. Enough said.

17. In soup - sniffly nose? Add a little sriracha to your soup to make you feel better.

18. In chow mein.

19. As a base for stir fry sauce.

20. In rice bowls - add 3/4 cup rice with 1/2 cup black beans, 1/3 cup mild salsa, a touch a salt, and sriracha to taste. It's delicious.
