50 healthy recipes using Sriracha hot sauce


Sriracha (pronounced sir-rotch-ah) is a bright red hot sauce that’s getting seriously popular. The paste-like sauce — named after Sri Racha, Thailand — is made from chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. The versatile hot stuff provides low-cal flavor and can be used as a dipping sauce for just about anything (Eggs? Sure! Chocolate ice cream? Yes please!), and is gaining fame as a go-to street-food condiment. If you want to sound extra cool, call it by its alias, “rooster sauce.”

To get started, make your own Sriracha with one of these recipes — honeyed Srirachasimple Sriracha— or find it in most major grocery stores (typically in the Asian foods section) with a bright green cap and a rooster on the label. Added bonus: Besides firing up a meal, studies suggest the capsaicin in chili peppers can speed up metabolism and suppress appetite[1][2].

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite healthier Sriracha recipes, from breakfast burritos, soups, and stews, to cocktails and sweet treats. Have a glass of milk on the ready, because it’s about to get hot up in here.

For a full list of recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks made with Sriracha hot chili sauce, go to Greatist.com.
