Sriracha Salsa, by Jardine Foods

Sriracha Salsa by Jardine FoodsOkay, people. We’ve reached Critical Mass. The Point of No Return. The Salsapocalypse. The folks over at the Jardine Ranch have created an unholy concoction that combines their salsa recipe with the flavors of Sriracha. By this point, I’ve written extensively about the Sriracha craze, but I had no idea it had gone this far. Fortunately, you have me here to protect you from this outbreak. Stick with me, and I’ll arm you with every bit of information you need to survive.

Peppers – Aged Red Cayenne and Garlic

Aged Cayenne and GarlicWhen I take trips to bigger cities than the one I live in, I always seek out something spicy like a store or local product. I had a little luck in this department on my latest vacation to Baltimore. The big pay off was when we made a detour to a store called Peppers in Delaware on our way home. I picked up one or two things. Okay, who am I kidding? It was quite a few things, but this is one of their private label sauces. I really dig the label’s caricature of a cayenne pepper with a long gray beard and sunglasses. I have said this before, but sometimes the most simply designed labels stick out the most. I am looking forward to diving into this one.  After all, who doesn’t love a good cayenne sauce from time to time?

Smoky Mountain Beef Jerky – Fire

Smoky Mountain Beef Jerky - FireThough the necessities of a balanced diet require me to be an omnivore, I am a carnivore at heart (there’s a very dark joke in there somewhere). A good burger or steak always gets my mouth watering. That’s why beef jerky, which is basically steak in snack form, is one of life’s greatest pleasures. You can imagine my kid-in-a-candy-store glee, then, when Corpus Christi finally got its own Beef Jerky Outlet store. It’s like the place was built just for me: hot sauce, spice rubs, and most importantly, walls of beef jerky. The spiciest offering in the store comes from the Smoky Mountain line, dubbed simply Fire.

Sriracha Quesarito, from Taco Bell

Sriracha QuesaritoThe Sriracha craze has been in full-swing for a while now. For whatever reason, the sauce that was once reserved for Chinese buffets is now nearly as ubiquitous as ketchup and salsa. Sriracha merchandise is everywhere, and I’ve even seen key-ring bottles for those of us who always need to carry some sauce with us. It’s no surprise, then, that Taco Bell, a chain that gave up on even trying to resemble Mexican food quite some time ago, has hopped on the bandwagon. This addition to their menu takes the already unholy Quesarito (a burrito wrapped in another tortilla with a layer of cheese sauce in between) and adds the restaurant’s creamy sriracha sauce. Makes sense.
