The ridiculously popular crispy chicken sandwich at Popeyes comes with your choice of regular mayonnaise or kicked-up spicy mayonnaise. Fortunately, I was able to hack the sandwich before it sold out just a couple weeks after its debut (get the recipe here), but that recipe includes just plain mayonnaise. Recently I had the chance to hack the secret spicy mayonnaise, and I’m glad I did. Popeyes chicken sandwich with regular mayonnaise is crazy good, but with spicy mayonnaise, that sandwich is great.

You can use this sauce on a variety of sandwiches and burgers, or as a dip for chicken fingers, nuggets, and fried shrimp.

Made this sauce to go with a homemade chicken sandwich. It tastes AMAZING, as if it came from Popeyes itself. It's not as spicy as Popeyes; it has a little kick, then the flavors take over. My parents cannot eat very spicy food, but when they tried it they said it was the perfect balance for them!

Just made it. It looks and tastes like Popeye's spicy mayo!
