  • In a small bowl, mix 1 cup of mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons of sriracha chili sauce, and ¾ teaspoons of ground cayenne pepper together until everything is well combined.
  • (Optional, but highly recommended) If you are adding garlic, grate it finely and put it in the bowl with the sauce and mix everything together. Start off by grating half a clove of garlic and mix it into the sauce. Do a taste test to make sure it is a good level of garlickiness. If you want it more garlicky, add the full clove.
  • Enjoy with snacks, sushi, veggies or sandwiches!


  • Japanese Kewpie Mayo - I like to use Japanese Kewpie Mayo for Sriracha mayo, which you can usually find at an Asian grocery store but I have found it at Walmart and specialty grocery stores as well. It has a bit more flavor than the standard mayonnaise because of the MSG in it but if you can't find Kewpie mayo, you can definitely substitute it with standard mayonnaise (Hellman's) but I wouldn't use Miracle Whip for this recipe. I personally find Miracle whip is too sweet for this recipe and has less of a creamy buttery flavor.
  • Ground Cayenne Pepper- Adding ground cayenne pepper the sauce gives the sriracha mayo a bit of a spicier kick and a stronger pepper flavor which gives the sauce a bit more flavor. A little goes a long way, so if you don't like spicy things, just put a small pinch and work your way up with taste testing until it is the right amount of spice level for you.
