Over the past few years, sriracha has really become the condiment du jour for a lot of people. Ten years ago, I don’t remember ever seeing it on restaurant menus, but now it’s everywhere. And no complaints on my end, because I love adding the spicy sauce to a meal when ketchup just isn’t doing it for me. I’m a fan of spicy food, so sriracha is one of those condiments that can improve most dishes, in my opinion.

A few weeks ago, I was shopping at the local Trader Joe’s in Rochester when an employee recommended their new Green Dragon Hot Sauce. He said that if I liked sriracha, I’d love this. When it comes to food, I’ll try anything once, so I went ahead and picked up a bottle.

Let me tell you right now – he was totally right. This stuff is very spicy, but has a unique flavor similar to sriracha. I put it on everything: eggs, tacos, pizza, crackers, nachos (I eat very healthy) – anything that could be improved with a little spice.

I still love sriracha, but if you’re also looking for a little variety, I highly recommend nabbing a bottle of this stuff the next time you’re at Trader Joe’s. It's seriously soooo good.
