Save the Sriracha!
Your favorite fiery condiment just moved to a new and larger plant in Irwindale, California to keep up with global demand. The new plant can produce as many as 200,000 bottles of sriracha each day, but the spicy aromas are causing nearby residents to complain, so the plant might get shut down — causing prices to go up. Time to stockpile sriracha and make some of these delicious dishes in honor of the peppery sauce.
