What to Serve Spicy Mayo With?

Spicy mayo works great on burgers, chicken sandwiches, with any Asian dish as a drizzle (think fried rice/noodles), or as a dipping sauce for fries, nuggets, and just about anything else!

To Make Spicy Mayo you Will Need:

To make spicy mayo you will only need a few basic ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge. This recipe is super forgiving and can be adjusted to taste.

Mayonnaise: because mayonnaise is such a huge part of this dish we like to use the best mayonnaise we can find. My personal favorite mayo is Duke’s Mayonnaise (not sponsored!) but any other brand will work just fine!

Hot sauce or Sriracha: you will need a spicy sauce to add a kick to the mayo. Hot sauce (any type) or sriracha, or adobo (from chipotles in adobo can), garlic chili sauce, or any other spicy sauce will work!

Lime juice: this ingredient is actually optional but adds a zesty kick to the sauce. It can also be replaced with lemon juice or vinegar.

Cajun seasoning: cajun seasoning is a blend of spices that work really well in seasoning this dish. They can easily be replaced with taco seasoning, chili powder, or your favorite spice blend.

How to Make Spicy Mayonnaise?

Making spicy mayo takes less than 2 minutes and is as easy ask whisking together mayonnaise, hot sauce or sriracha, lime juice, and a dash of cajun or taco seasoning!

What can I Replace Mayonnaise With?

If there’s ever a time to splurge and use mayonnaise this would be it but if you’d like to make this recipe a bit healthier you can easily replace all, half, or some of the mayo with sour cream or Greek Yogurt.

How to Store Mayo

This spicy mayo will last in the fridge for a good month. Be sure to cover it well with plastic wrap or store it in a mason jar or any airtight container.

  1. Amazing! I used Taco Seasoning and along with hot sauce mixed in some louisiana wing sauce and it was sooooo good! I dipped my popcorn in it! I did not have any lime or lemon juice but it was good without it! I’m definitely making this often. It tastes like a spicy taco dip!!! so good!

  2. I accidentally added curry powder instead of chili powder, then decided to add the chili powder as well and see how it turned out. The addition of curry powder was amazing! This sauce is great shaken up with some popcorn. My husband is addicted and had me send him the recipe so he can make the flavored popcorn himself!

    1. Thank you for the feedback. I’m so happy you enjoyed it!

    1. Simple and delicious. Thank you!!

      I cannot understand taking the time to comment negatively on a recipe. So bizarre. Honey is amazing with the spice!!

  3. This is my go to spicy mayo sauce. I don’t really measure, I just eye ball based on how much I need. Delicious every time!

  4. Adding honey took it to the next level. I wasn’t paying attention to how much I added. I did it to taste. I also omitted the lime juice.

    Thanks for this recipe. I tried to make it before but it was never right. Cajun seasoning was the ingredient I was missing.

  5. Adding honey took it to the next level. I wasn’t paying attention to how much I added. I did it to taste.

  6. Definitely not spicy enough. I used 4T of Sriracha but could have easily added 5. I used half of 1 lime only and added garlic powder, black pepper and a couple of dashes of pink Himalayan salt 😋

  7. 1 cup mayo stand for how much (ml) mayo? Coz I wanna make it for 1kg mayo, so 1kg, how many table spoon should I mix with it? Please somebody hekp6me.

  8. 1 tablespoon of siracha with one cup of mayo isn’t enough for spice. Try 1 cup of siracha with half a cup of mayo

  9. Made a few tweaks to this and it was pretty spicy. Made a double batch. 2 cups of mayo 3 tbsp of sirracha, 3 tbsp of extreme regret pepper sauce, and 2 tsp of blackened season, and 3 tbsp of lemon juice

  10. I used:

    1 cup of mayo
    1 1/2 tbsp of Sambal Oelek
    1 tbsp of lemon juice (next time, I’ll use lime juice; has more kick)
    1 1/2 tbsp of Chili powder

    It was perfect. Husband says :”Exactly like Tim Hortons but better.”

    Thanks! This recipe is a keeper!!!

  11. I made it with Frank’s hot sauce and it really wasn’t good, definitely want to try it with siracha next time.

  12. Love this sauce, made it a few times. It’s really peoples choice if they like it spicer or not!

    I love spicy so I added 4 Tablespoons of hot sauce and 3 of lime juice! Perfect!
    I eat it with quesadillas,fish, hamburgers etc.

    Can be used for so many dishes!
    Trying it on salmon next!
    Thanks for sharing!🤩

  13. Had to heavily modify the recipe to take remotely spicy. 1tbsp of hot sauce and 1 tsp of power did not have any effect in one cup of mayo.

    Website was very hard to maneuver too.

  14. I made this to dip our chicken quesadillas in. It was a hit! The family loved it! And it was super easy and quick to make

  15. Tried this with sriracha, taco seasoning, and substituted half of the mayo with the yogurt recommendation. It was fantastic!! Used on fish tacos and for dipping sauce for fries.

  16. don’t rate the website, rate the food, personally I loved this recipe
