Tips

  • Let it Marinate – This is flavorful right away, but you can make flavored mayo and aioli recipes several hours in advance and keep covered in the fridge so flavors can marinate.
  • We like olive oil mayo, if you’re looking for a store bought variety to make it spicy!
  • Fresh – Because this is such a simple recipe with minimal ingredients, the quality of your ingredients will shine! Use fresh ingredients for the best outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

How spicy is sriracha mayo?

It is mildly spicy. You can adjust and add more sriracha or red pepper flakes to spice it up even more. Adding additional sriracha sauce will thin the mayo.

What is the difference between hot sauce and sriracha?

They are actually somewhat similar, but in addition to more garlic and sugar, sriracha also has significantly more chili! It’s also thicker than many traditional hot sauces.
