SPAM musubi sounds and looks terribly intimidating, doesn’t it? When you see that neatly wrapped Hawaiian parcel, you’d never think you could make it at home. In reality, this recipe comes together so easily, especially if you have your can handy to form the musubi in!

Now that you know how simple it is to make at home, you can deviate from plain old flavors, and add spice and heat to this extremely snackable bite. Add kimchi to the rice, and make a decadent, spicy sriracha mayo to make it even better.

By adding sriracha (or any hot sauce like gochujang) to your Lady’s Choice Real Mayonnaise, you get a velvety dip that you can layer in between the rice and SPAM, and have extra on the side for dipping.
