The wildly popular Sriracha has hit the big leagues and will now be a featured sauce at the global sandwich chain, Subway. For those that are unfamiliar with the magical sauce, Sriracha is a type of hot sauce, named after the coastal city of Si Racha, in the Chonburi Province of Eastern Thailand, where it was possibly first produced for dishes served at local seafood restaurants. It is a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. The American version has a heat rating of around 2,000 scoville units, or less than half that of jalapeño peppers.
The featured sandwich is the NEW Sriracha Chicken Melt Melty pepperjack cheese over tender chicken and topped with jalapeños and fiery Sriracha Sauce. Chicken just got bold.
