    Sriracha hot sauce purveyor turns up the heat

    The gig: David Tran, 68, founded hot sauce company Huy Fong Foods Inc. in Chinatown in 1980 and a few years later introduced Sriracha sauce to the U.S.

    Refugee: When North Vietnam's communists took power in South Vietnam, Tran, a major in the South Vietnamese army, fled with his family to the U.S, After settling in Los Angeles, Tran couldn't find a job or a hot sauce to his liking.

    Packing heat: Early on, one of Tran's packaging suppliers told him, "Your product is too spicy. How can you sell it?" Add a tomato base, some friends counseled. Sweeten the flavor to pair it better with chicken, others said. But Tran stood firm.

    "Hot sauce must be hot. If you don't like it hot, use less," he said. "We don't make mayonnaise here."

    I love that stuff. Goes great on eggs, in Pho, or a burger.

    Agreed.

    Also surprisingly good is siracha and peanut butter on broccoli, carrots, tortillas, and most other things. No, this is not a practical joke. It really is good!

    We (well, I) go through a large bottle in about a month.
    Wife mostly got over my spicing up her recipes a while ago, although I still get the occasional eyeroll.

    Lays is running a series of new flavors, one of them is Sriracha. Even my kids are eating that one. (although the best one is Chicken & Waffles, IMO).

    I think I want to get that tattooed on me somewhere.

    and, yes, Sriracha for a period of time went on almost everything I ate. That period of time only ended when I ran out of sriracha.

    Also, this (NSFW):

    This is a Sriracha burn. It'll hurt more than you've ever been burned. Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing. Stay with it. This is your pain. It's right here. What you're feeling is premature enlightenment. It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.
