You know how you tend to get tired of your own cooking? Yeah. I cook at home a LOT. But sometimes I’m just so bored with our regular menu. I’ve been actively working to add some different flavors to the dinner table, and sauces are one of my tricks.
My usual tacos are just that much better with cilantro sauce. Fresh fish pairs nicely with peach salsa. And this spicy mayo? It’s good for dipping chicken tenders, roasted okra, or serving with sushi. It also makes a nice sauce for poke.

Mayonnaise – As you’d guess, mayo is the base for this recipe. Use your favorite brand or try your hand and making my 60-second homemade mayonnaise.
Sour cream – Surprise! I like to cut the mayonnaise with sour cream. It gives the sauce a creamier consistency. If you’re dairy free, though? By all means use mayo instead.
Sriracha – Doesn’t everyone keep a bottle of this multi-purpose hot sauce in their pantry? Prefer to make your own? Try this recipe!
Seasonings – These are totally optional but for extra flavor try adding a bit of garlic powder and dry ranch seasoning. You can make your own ranch seasoning, too. Try this recipe.
