Spicy Mayo Dip

I make all of my sauces, dips, dressings, and marinades from scratch as often as I can.  I have found that by doing so, you stock up on a lot of basic ingredients, and over time, usually have what you need for a wide variety of recipes already on hand.  Plus you are able to tailor the flavors exactly to your family's preferences.

This is one such recipe.  I love anything spicy.  Usually, the more heat, the better!  I was initially looking for a spicy dip for sweet potato fries when I stumbled upon this combination.  

It may look weird, but it is so good!  Not only do we love it as a dip for sweet potato fries, we can use it as a sandwich or burger spread, or even in our crispy chicken wraps.  You can make just the amount you need at whatever spice you like.  I usually use a ratio of ½ C mayo with 1 - 1½ Tbsp Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce.  That seems to satisfy my desire for spice as well as my husband's need to not feel like his mouth is on fire.  The best part is you can play with it until you find the ratio that works for you!
