Sriracha | A must-have in my kitchen

I have talked about my must-have staples in my spice cabinet before, but I left out something very important... sriracha. Sriracha is a sweet, tangy paste made with sun-ripened chili peppers, garlic, vinegar, sugar and salt. I love it SO much. I use it on and in just about everything savory. There is something so perfect about the balance of heat, garlic and chili that makes it irresistible. I think from getting more "mature", I can't seem to handle very spicy, hot condiments like I used to.

It's amazing how a few squirts of sriracha can transform a dish. My husband isn't quite sold and still prefers the traditional West Indian pepper sauce. I need to find sriracha in mini-bottles so I can stash one in my purse! I am serious :-)

Are you a sriracha fan?

  1. I've been hearing about sriracha all week. Never tried it but with all the good things I've been hearing, I'm going to have to pick up a bottle and try it out.

  2. My husband is a big sriracha fan, he likes to mix a little with tuna fish and eat it with crackers. Me on the other hand I will pass. We do add small amounts to dinner at times, but only small amounts.

  3. I love it...I use it on most things savory as well. I still use Franks on certain things but sriracha taken over in many instances.
