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 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. Try it on sandwiches and eggs instead of crushed red pepper or paprika.
- 1/2 cup Sriracha hot sauce
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then pour the Sriracha sauce onto the paper.
- Distribute the sauce evenly across the paper using a spatula.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for approximately 90 minutes (or until the hot sauce has completely dried).
- Remove the baking sheet from the heat and break the dried Sriracha up (it will break into clumps).
- Using a mortar and pestle, grind the dried Sriracha into powder form.
