Fiery Sriracha Fries

Fries with attitude…

Potatoes are a perfect pairing with hot sauces and chili powders. These root vegetables just soak in the delicious heat and unique flavors of whatever coats them. So Sriracha meet the Russet, and be ready to meet your new favorite fry.

It’s a pairing destined to be part of your go-to options for barbecues and cook-outs. Sriracha delivers not only spiciness, but also a slight garlic undertone that just works with fries. They go great with spicy hamburgers or steak especially.

For extra heat, consider sprinkling a little homemade Sriracha powder (very easy to make) over the fries prior to serving. It’ll add color and an immediate kick to the eating experience.
