Sriracha sauces add spice to table
Lee Kum Kee recently added Sriracha Chili Ketchup to its line of Asian condiments, combining the all-American sweet tomato condiment with a touch of heat, which may be a welcome addition to your Superbowl Sunday spread.
And, many will be happy to note the Sriracha Chili Ketchup is gluten-free and contains no MSG, artificial flavoring, preservatives or colors. An 18-ounce bottle retails for about $3.99 at supermarkets.
Lee Kum Kee provided a few easy recipes to try, using the ketchup and other Lee Kum Kee sauces:
SRIRACHA KETCHUP ROASTED POTATOES
» 1-1/2 pounds of halved baby potatoes
» 1/2 cup Lee Kum Kee Sriracha Ketchup

Combine the ingredients in a large bowl. Spread in baking dish and roast at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.
» 2 eggs, beaten
