Feastie Friday: Sriracha
Sriracha is like, so hot right now. ;) For those who already enjoy the deliciousness that is Sriracha, well you're in luck because we're sharing 5 of our favorite Sriracha recipes with you today. For those unfamiliar with Sriracha - be prepared for your next foodie addiction! Sometimes referred to as "rooster sauce", Sriracha is a smoky, spicy, uber-flavorful hot sauce that is easily recognizable by the rooster printed right on the bottle. It's made from ripe red jalapenos, and the sauce is less spicy than a regular jalepeno, but spicier than a banana pepper - in other words, the perfect amount of heat. It's showing up in everything these days - even ice cream! It deserves a spot in your hot sauce collection alongside the Cholulas, Tabascos and Frank's - you'll soon find yourself reaching for this familiar bottle during breakfast, lunch, and dinner - maybe even dessert. We've rounded up 5 of our favorite Sriracha recipes for you to try, so go get your rooster sauce and get cooking.
