50 healthy recipes using Sriracha hot 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.
