American style chili oil

EdwinNJ | Jul 12, 201302:19 PM     12

So, with my buddy, we made a video showing how to make my take on chili oil

Smaller version video is linked in the description on youtube, if you want.

Basically

you take dried peppers.
Roast SOME of them.
Grind them all
put in the bottle/jar you'll be using, deciding how much solids/oil you want
Fill jar with oil to the top (I recommend peanut oil)
Dump all out into pot
Heat for a while, like 15 minutes, never past 300 F
Spoon back into jar
add salt, stir solids

When you eat, you can scoop out the salty solids or skim the oil at the top, depending on your taste preference

NO ma-la pepper, no peanuts, no sesame, no garlic/onion/alliums

This is like the tastiest condiment you'll ever have. It's great on starches, cheesy starch casseroles, and other cheesy things. Woud be amazing on mac and cheese (Can't remember if I've done this yet). Pizza is a cheese/starch casserole in essence, but I dunno if it'd be good with pizza
