Sriracha is certainly having a moment. With humble beginnings in a seaside town in Thailand, the sweet-and-spicy chili sauce surged in popularity after Huy Fong Foods introduced the rooster-adorned, green-capped version to America in the 1980s. As the condiment continues to gain fans, creative twists infused with unique, all-new flavors are appearing on store shelves. From wine to anchovies, here are five innovative takes on the classic sauce.

Ravenswood Zinfandel Chili Sauce by Jojo's Sriracha
New to the spicy sauce? This wine-infused version is a nice introduction. The rich, fruity notes of the red wine temper the heat, making a smooth sauce that pairs well with any meal, from scrambled eggs to grilled chicken. ($14; ravenswoodwinery.com

Tabasco Brand Sriracha
The hot sauce titan recently rolled out its own take on the Asian sauce, though the “limited-edition” product is currently only available in the brand’s online store. The red-pepper based condiment offers a nice balance of sweet and tangy flavors to stir-fries, noodles, and soups. ($5; tabasco.com)
