Homemade Sriracha Powder

Turn your favorite hot sauce into a spicy powder!

What’s a spicy food lover’s kitchen without a bottle of Sriracha hot sauce? Its spicy and tangy flavor brings big life to many a dish. But what if you’d love that Sriracha taste but prefer to not add another liquid to a recipe or meal, in fear of making things too soggy?That’s where this homemade Sriracha powder comes in mighty handy. It’s simple to make and still brings that unique red jalapeño spice and vinegary tang to the table.

Obviously, this is an excellent substitute for the rooster sauce when you’d rather not add liquid to a recipe. But this seasoning is more versatile than that. Use Sriracha powder anywhere that you’d use a dash of chili powder, paprika, crushed red pepper, or cayenne powder. Try it on sandwiches and eggs, mix it into soups, and sprinkle it over salads. Really there are so many ways to use this delicious seasoning.

Our homemade Sriracha powder is a super simple recipe – just one ingredient and a few easy steps. But if you prefer something premade, we have you covered there, too. Take a look at our spicery – we carry Sriracha powder ready for purchase, along with many other fiery spices. They’re a terrific way to fire up your spice rack.
