Some like it hot

We love spicy foods in our household. Not the so-absurdly-spicy-that-it-causes-pain type of spicy, but spicy enough to give you a little kick. As a Southerner living in New England, I find it challenging to find spicy food, and often a request for Tabasco results in a server searching the restaurant for the one bottle the restaurant has on hand. Shocking!
So, I get my fix at home. Sriracha is one of our favorite hot sauces. Itís pretty spicy, but also contains garlic, so it has a bigger flavor than just heat. I put it on everything (like pizza and eggs dishes), and in lots of things (various sauces, including peanut sauce and puttanesca). It is inexpensive, and comes in 2 forms: conveniently pureed and in a squirt bottle, or chunky in a jar.
The New York Times recently did a story on it, and it turns out that itís made in America, and was originally intended for Asian-Americans (who, like a Southerner in New England, have a hard time getting spicy enough food in America). Apparently it has a growing, cult-like following. I guess you can count me as a member!
