The very first time I bought sriracha, I had to return it.

One week after purchasing it, I was diagnosed with a nightshade sensitivity, ruling out all things made with chili peppers. To say I was bummed would be an understatement. But I suppose I didn’t really know what I was missing when it came to the sriracha.

Fast forward 6 years, and sriracha finally made another appearance on our shopping list.

Only this time, I didn’t have to return it.

Which is pretty darn fantastic, because I’m kind of obsessed with it now.

I add a little squirt into ketchup for a little kick. I add a dot into stir-fries and fried rices. But my absolute favorite way to use it? When making hamburgers.

They’ve pretty much taken over my life. And it’s the only way I want to eat hamburgers now. The Hubster too. The last time we had these, he said “I’m not sure where you got the idea for these, but I am so thankful that these have come into my life. They are damn good burgers.”

I kid you not.

If beef isn’t your thing, I’m pretty sure that you could add a tablespoon or two of sriracha to your favorite veggie burger recipe and it would be killer.
