Calling all my spicy lovers! And even my non-spicy lovers, because while it packs some heat, it’s all wrapped up in a creamy sriracha flavor that is dynamite! My husband and I make this sauce almost weekly to add to fish tacos or spread on sandwiches. We also love to serve it alongside chips or chicken as an easy appetizer!

I will admit, you can buy some darn good sauces at the grocery store these days, all bottled and ready to pour in a bowl and call it a day. So why make your own? FLAVOR. You will absolutely notice the difference if you take a few seconds to whip up your own dipping sauces!

When it comes to making homemade dipping sauces, the key is simple ingredients. No fuss. Plus, when you taste this creamy sriracha dipping sauce, you’ll be making it ALL THE TIME! I used to always make homemade honey mustard dipping sauce but I’ve been converted!

This sriracha sauce is similar to a sriracha mayo or spicy mayo that you have it at Asian restaurants. It’s good on just about ANYTHING!

Let’s take a look at the ingredients!

Creamy Sriracha Dipping Sauce Recipe

Sriracha Sauce Ingredients

  • Mayonnaise
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Sour Cream
  • Garlic Powder
  • Sriracha (Hot Chili Sauce)
  • Paprika

Just 6 ingredients to the best sriracha dipping sauce you’ve ever tried! Here are a few recipe tips and notes.

Mayonnaise – I love Duke’s mayonnaise, but use what you have! Full fat mayo or light mayo will work.

Sour Cream – Again, full fat or light sour cream will work just fine!

Sriracha – You know it. You love it! Add more or less, to taste. I’d suggest starting out with 2 teaspoons and go up from there if you want to up the spice level. My husband likes his sriracha dipping sauce with more of a kick, so he adds a bit more. I also like to garnish my sauce with an extra drizzle of sriracha if I’m serving it up to party guests!

Fresh Lime Juice – Squeeze your own if you have a lime, but no worries if you’re using store-bought.

Garlic Powder & Paprika – These add a good depth of flavor. You can substitute in a smoky paprika as well. Onion powder is also delicious in this sauce. Or add in red pepper for an extra boost of heat!

Put a twist on it! You can also add a sweet touch with a little bit of honey to make a Honey Sriracha Dipping Sauce!

  1. I made this sauce, and it was exactly what I was looking for! I didn’t have sriracha, so I substituted 3 tsp. of Thai chili sauce, and I also used twice as much lime juice. So delicious, thank you for the fantastic and simple recipe!!
