Dynamite sauce truly is dy-no-mite. This 3-ingredient sauce (!!) is spicy, creamy, and simple to make. It’s also versatile. Slather it on sandwiches, use it as a dip, drizzle it on eggs, mix it into pasta, or drink it. (Well, no, but you could…) This isn’t a sauce so much as a philosophy, a mantra, a way of life: the power of three and ease. Ease and the power of three. Life is difficult enough, no need to complicate things with a fancy sauce.
And this is not a fancy sauce, not in the least. Take Sriracha, Frank’s hot sauce, and a good quality mayonnaise. Grab a tablespoon, a measuring cup, or a giant bowl, whatever floats your boat for whatever quantity you desire, then mix everything in equal portions, as in one tablespoon each of sriracha, hot sauce, and mayo, and you’re good to go. See, ease and the power of three.
Confession: I packed Sriracha and took it to China. My love of this beautiful condiment runs deep. The sun-ripened chilies give the sauce a punch of sweet, spicy flavor that’s delicious in most everything. And when it comes to hot sauce, Frank’s is on point. It is vinegar forward and packs some heat yet remains well-balanced. No wonder it’s the chosen sauce for buffalo wings. Combine the two for an explosion of flavor. And the heat? Dynamite Sauce comes in around 5 out of 10 on a chile scale thanks to the mellowing effects of the mayo. Add more or less mayo to suit your palate, though there goes the whole symmetry of it all, just saying.
This sauce is great with eggs. Try a spicy egg McMuffin or a bagel and egg wonder. Mix the sauce with shredded rotisserie chicken and throw it in a sandwich or roll it in a tortilla and fry it taquito-style. Use it as a dipping sauce for chicken fingers or slather it on your burger. So many possibilities! It’s so easy and comes together in no time making it a great condiment for last-minute heat. The power of three and ease. Dy-no-mite!
