Sometimes, I feel like I should rename this blog to House of Bacon and Sriracha. I mean, it doesn’t really roll off the tongue very well, but it does do a pretty great job of giving you guys an accurate picture of what I’m all about. Bacon and Sriracha are my jam (and now, I totally want to make a bacon and Sriracha jam).
The interesting thing about my love of Sriracha is that I don’t even really like spicy foods. Yup. I’m a total wimp when it comes to heat. I remember going to a sandwich shop with a friend, and our sandwiches accidentally got switched. I took a bite of it, and literally started crying because there were jalapeños on it. One bite. Tears. Wimp.
But there is something about Sriracha that is different. It’s not just throat-searing hot like a lot of hot sauces. It actually has flavor. It’s sweet and spicy and interesting. And I love it a whole bunches. Especially when combined with bacon and cheese.
Today, I’m bringing you a recipe that combines bacon and Sriracha in, what I’d consider, a more “normal” way—queso! It’s your typical dreamy-creamy cheese dip spiked with some awesome Sriracha spice. And then, that sweet kick is balanced out by some smoky chopped bacon.
