Food is almost always better with a bit of spice. Tacos? Add hot sauce. In my house, there are easily over a dozen different bottles of hot sauce ranging from mild to melt-your-face-off hot. What can I say? I like it spicy.


One of those hot sauce staples is Sriracha. There is just something about the big red bottle that I love and I am not alone in that sentiment. There was a point in time when Sriracha hot sauce was a hot commodity and in very short supply. It appears that could soon happen once again.

Will Colorado Have a Sriracha Shortage in 2024?

According to Denver 7, Huy Fong Foods, the maker of Sriracha hot sauce, is dealing with a supply chain shortage of one of the main ingredients in the sauce. The ingredient is an integral part of the makeup of the hot sauce. The red jalapeno pepper. These red peppers are not red enough to meet the standards of Sriracha hot sauce.

It is reported that Huy Fong Foods will halt production of Sriracha hot sauce through September 2. So if you are running low on your favorite bottle of hot sauce known as Sriracha, you might want to get your hands on a bottle or two before they are no longer available this summer.

This Local Colorado Mexican Restaurant Is One Of The Best

After opening in 2008, Las Palmeras Mexican Restaurant has become one of the area's very best locally-owned places to get delicious, and authentic Mexican food. We found this place by accident years ago while driving hungry down Main Street in Longmont and have been regulars ever since. The owner, the staff, the food, and the drinks are all top notch and that's what makes this one of Colorado's top choices for delicious Mexican food.
