HEAT RATING: 3
You know the east Asian heat of Chi-racha from the popular sauce of similar name, but the Co-op version brings you the familiar flavors of fermented jalapeno and garlic without the preservatives. You’re welcome. A crowd pleaser that’s good on just about everything, especially rice and noodle dishes.
TRY IT WITH: Fried rice, pad thai
