Also, several people mentioned Sriracha.  I don't think I've had it - can I get a regular grocery stores?  .........Anyone?

Its usually with either the Asian foods or the hot sauces. Google image to see what it looks like.

I chose mustard and salsa.

We have at least 6 kinds of mustard in our refrigerator. My favorites are horseradish mustard and stone ground mustard. We also eat a lot of balsamic vinegar.

When we have tator tots or french fries at home, I mix together ketchup, worcestershire sauce and garlic salt together as a dipping sauce. DH and DS are hooked on it!

I grew up in Miracle Whip country, and the land of mustard burgers. I didn't have mayonnaise until I was 20. My favorite burger topping is a mixture of Hellmann's light mayonnaise and Hunt's ketchup.

I forgot DH's favorite, Texas Pete Garlic Hot Sauce. He loves sriracha too.

I love Thai peanut sauce, but I am having reactions to peanuts now.  :(

Siriacha is sometimes called Rooster sauce because of the picture of a Rooster on the bottle. Another vote for it, too.

I am going to have to try that.  Sounds good!

I love tomato jam. It's good on almost everything.

This is an interesting thread.  I never heard the term Sriracha before this week but we have had it and like it.

It seems that it's also a candidate for a new potato chip flavor. 

Oh, BTW, I forgot to add Branston Pickle to my list. 

Hmmmmm

Slightly off topic... but for those you are love horseradish, try making your fresh if you haven't yet. It's super easy and we can readily find horseradish root in the grocery store.  Just peel, dice, and throw in a food processor to chop, add in some vinegar and a little salt. We find it is usually about twice as strong as the prepared bottled versions.

Couldn't help myself ;) -- I'm not sure how "clean" the store-bought roots are, but if they come with a leaf-top (like the leaf-end of a carrot) maybe some eyes (like a potato) throw those in your garden and grow your own! If, when you harvest, you throw the leaf-tops back in the ground they will come back every year and spread.

Sriracha for sure.

I really like horseradish, but sriracha goes with, like, everything.

I now use it in place of salsa when I'm having Mexican style food at home.

Another vote for Sriracha.  I agree that it goes well with Mexican foods.  A favorite snack in our house is "Sriracha Nachos".  Yum!!

English mustard
HP sauce

When I visited N Ireland I got addicted to HP sauce. I buy it here now. My store has a nice international foods aisle.  :)

I love ketchup, especially since it is pretty low in calories, and so many other sauces aren't.

But I also love the Horsey sauce from Arby's. Seriously. I think there should be a "Horsey Sauce Anonymous" club or something.

And don't get me started on honey mustard. I LOVE O'Charley's honey mustard. Seriously, I didn't like honey mustard until I tried theirs. Now I'm hooked. :)

Is Sriracha also known as Sambal?
