Sriracha -- it's an astronomically popular hot sauce named after the coastal city of Si Racha in Thailand that found its way to mass appeal in the United States courtesy of brands like Huy Fong Foods Inc. (pictured).

The cock sauce has been the focus of cookbooks, clothes, has been jocked by Subway, and web-famous cartoonist The Oatmeal even satirically prototyped a Sriracha Beer Helmets.

We take to the kitchen with hamburgers, noodles, avocados, ice cream, cupcakes and a dreamy hope of paying tribute to that spicy-good-burn we simply can't live without. Hell, have you ever squirted Sriracha into your popcorn bag and shaken it up? You're in for a good time, trust:
