Celebrate Sriracha! 21 Unique Ways to Use Sriracha

Start slathering Sriracha on more than just your eggs or evening bowl of pho! Much to the surprise of sauce creator, David Tran, Sriracha has gained an almost cult-like following.

Looking for a few fun recipes that will expand your Sriracha repertoire? Here are 21 inventive new ways to spice up the dishes in your kitchen.
