Sriracha dipping sauce is a great homemade dipping sauce that goes perfectly with French Fries or chicken nuggets. Whip this easy sauce up in minutes. Made with mayo, ketchup, sriracha sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and red pepper flakes. It also makes for a great sandwich spread.
There have been many meals lately that I watch my girls use ranch or mayo for dipping what we are eating in. I'm talking pizza, fries, chicken nuggets of course, and the list goes on.
As I watch them dipping away at another meal I got thinking about making a homemade French Fry sauce. Sometimes I like a little spicy heat to things so I decided that sriracha sauce was going to be a key player in this recipe. Now I like a little spicy heat but not a lot, this recipe can be changed up a bit to customize it to your liking.
When I first whipped this sauce up the intention was to have it with fries. But we have found that it also goes really well with chicken nuggets. As well as makes for a great sandwich spread.
Sriracha Dipping Sauce Recipe
This is an easy recipe that is quick to make but is packed with flavor. In a large bowl add mayo, ketchup, sriracha sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and for more spice red pepper flakes.
Mix all the ingredients together until all are combined. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. I do recommend giving it a good stir before using it each time just to combine any ingredients that may have separated from each other.
How Can I Make It Less Spicy?
One of my girls doesn't like spiciness to any of her food. If we are using pepper jack cheese for tacos she will grab the mild cheddar for hers.
So I have altered this dipping sauce for her a bit. One way to make it less spicy would be to leave out the pepper flakes or scale back on the amount. Another way would be also to scale back on the Sriracha sauce.
Since she doesn't like any spice her favorite way to have it is without the sriracha or red pepper flakes. I feel it's the combination of the mayo, ketchup, and sriracha sauce that makes this the best sauce. I find myself whipping this recipe up all the time to have with fries.
Some tips for changes to this recipe would be to start with the mayo itself. We like the creaminess that mayo brings to this recipe. However, if you like the tanginess that Miracle Whip has then this would be a great substitution.
The sriracha is another way to change the flavor of this recipe. I used a mild sriracha sauce. Sriracha Sauce comes in hot as well as blended with different flavors. There is sriracha with garlic, onion, sour sriracha, and even one with ginger. You could also add more sriracha sauce into the recipe than what I did for more spice. I did feel that with the sriracha sauce and red pepper flakes that it had a nice spiciness to it.
The next change would be with the spices. I have been using a Himalayan Pink salt because it's lower in sodium than table salt. This could be replaced with garlic or onion salt or even garlic or onion powder. Change out the red pepper flakes for red pepper or even paprika. The changes with spices I feel could be endless.
The Worcestershire sauce helps to balance the other ingredients out with its tangy, sweet, savory, and salty flavor.
This sauce would go perfect smothered on our Sub Sandwich recipe as well as many other sandwiches.
