Heat things up with these three easy and spicy Sriracha snacks.

 Spicy snacking

My bottle of Sriracha sauce gets quite a workout in my kitchen. I drizzle it on my morning eggs, on salads for lunch and anything that involves rice automatically gets a dousing. For you spice addicts out there, it's the perfect condiment. These three snacks are an easy way to get your spicy Sriracha fix in between meals.
