Homemade sriracha powder is extremely simple to make

Obviously, this is an excellent substitute for the rooster sauce when you’d rather not add liquid to a recipe. But this seasoning is more versatile than that. Use sriracha powder anywhere that you’d use a dash of chili powder, paprika, crushed red pepper, or cayenne powder. Try it on sandwiches and eggs, mix it into soups, and sprinkle it over salads. Really there are so many ways to use this delicious seasoning.
