Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 teaspoons dried chili flakes (, the same kind you put on pizza)
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a sauce pan until it's just hot enough so that the chile flakes sizzle like crazy when you add them- but not so hot that they burn.
  2. Turn off the heat.
  3. Stir the flakes into the oil.
  4. Let cool.
  5. You can strain the oil or leave the flakes in it.
