If you’re a fan of spicy mayo, look no further than my Easy Sriracha Mayo recipe! This flavorful mayo takes the boring to extraordinary while being super easy to make. You can use it any way you would traditional mayo but you get an extra kick of flavor!
I love sriracha Mayo. I have used it for years on all the things. My favorite way to use it is on tacos.
I know it sounds weird but many, many years ago someone on Instagram told me to try it on tacos and I’ve never made a taco without it since. Since I can’t do dairy, I feel like it takes the place of the sour cream. And, this may sound strange, but it reminds me of the tacos from Taco Bell. I am not ashamed to admit that I used to like the tacos from there. 😆
Anywho. I always used to buy my sriracha mayo (the Sir Kensington’s brand is my fave) but then I started making my own at home. I found I actually prefer to make it myself because I can tweak the ingredients just the way I want.
How to Use Your Easy Sriracha Mayo
The fun thing about this easy sriracha mayo is that you can use it in a million different ways. I’ve used it on eggs, sandwiches, burritos, salads, and more. I’ve also used it as a dip for veggies, chicken nuggets, or even chips.

Choosing a Quality Mayo
When it comes to mayo, quality matters. Most cheap, conventional mayo is made with poor quality oils that are high in inflammatory compounds (like Omega 6s). For the most part, I try to steer clear of conventional seed and vegetable oils. If you’re not familiar with this topic and want to learn more, I highly recommend reading my article on The Best Oils for Cooking and Baking.
Unless you make your own mayo at home, it’s going to be hard to avoid all seed and vegetable oils in a commercial brand, even the organic, high-quality ones. I personally don’t mind consuming some of these oils if they are high-quality, organic versions since my overall intake of high Omega-6 foods is very low.
So, for this recipe, I recommend using a good quality mayonnaise or making your own. Homemade mayo is so easy to whip up and frankly, it tastes amazing. I have two easy mayo recipes for you:
If you don’t want to make your own then I have a few brands that I do like. Most health food stores are going to carry these brands or you can easily find them online.
- Coconaise – By far my favorite commercial mayo. It’s made with super clean ingredients like coconut oil and the taste is primo! It does use sunflower seed oil but the amount is small and it’s organic.
- Chosen Foods Organic Classic Mayo – My second favorite commercial brand. Made with avocado, coconut, and safflower oils. The taste is definitely one of the best in my opinion.
- Sir Kensington’s Avocado Oil Mayo – The taste on this one is good, although it’s not my all-time favorite. This version only uses avocado oil though so it’s a great option if you are avoiding highly refined seed and vegetable oils completely.
- Sir Kensington’s Organic Mayo – This mayo has more of a classic taste. Although it’s made with sunflower oil, it’s all organic. I find this one to be a tad bit on the sweet side so those who like the Miracle Whip flavor might prefer this one.
Easy Sriracha Mayo Notes
Now that we’ve discussed choosing a mayo (who knew that could take up a whole section all on its own?!), let’s talk about a few other things.
When it comes to sriracha, use whatever brand you like. There are a few sriracha brands on the market that I like:
I am a big fan of tweaking my recipes depending on what I am making. So I encourage you to have fun and play around! Here are some things that I often tweak when making this at home.
- Add extra lime juice and a touch of white wine vinegar for an easy creamy salad dressing.
- Add chopped cilantro and parsley and drizzle over stir-fry or nachos.
- Add a little of my Cajun seasoning for some smoky flavor and then use it as a dip for pretty much anything.
Alrighty, friends! Enough talking! Let’s get cooking so we can eat!
- 1 cup high-quality mayonnaise (I'm linking to my favorite - please see notes in the post above or below about brands or how to make your own)
- 1tsp to 1 tbsp of sriracha sauce (this really depends on how hot you like it - again see notes below or in post above for brand recommendations)
- 1/2 fresh lime, juiced
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- Place all ingredients in a small bowl or jar and stir or whisk until everything is well combined.
- Store in the fridge for up to two weeks (but I'm guessing it won't last that long!).
