Some friends gave me some of this Eden Foods Hot Pepper Sesame Oil a while back. They eat it on practically everything, pizza, etc. I'm not quite so serious about it, but my bottle is running on empty, and I started looking for some more. I haven't found it in my grocery store, but I did find it available on Amazon (see link above). Then, I was browsing Pinterest and found this recipe for Hot Chili Oil. So, of course, I had to try it.
This was really easy to make, and the oil is really good.
I used my Ninja to chop the chili peppers, and that seemed to work really well. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly after handling the chili peppers - or wear gloves. Dried peppers can be just as painful as the fresh ones if you touch your eyes (or nose) afterwards!
So far I've used it to pop some chili spiced popcorn and drizzled it on my Beef Noodle Bowl. Now that I'm no longer running low on my chili oil, and I know how easy it is to replenish it, I am going to have to start using it on everything. I know there are a lot more uses for it than I've tried. Yet.
Do you use Hot Chili Oil? What do you like to use it for? I'd love to hear some great ideas.
