Johnboy’s homemade Chili Oil


John Boy’s Homemade Chili Oil!

Wow, long time no blog.. Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back into blogging but sometimes I guess thats how the cookie crumbles.. Since the New Year John and I have both been on a healthy kick and have been doing a great job at eating healthier foods! So look forward to recipes that are healtheir and a little more heart smart!

 This  next recipe is totally awesome and SUPER easy to make, anyone can do it!!  My husband John does a fantastic job at making this and we use it all the time. We think it is a must have in every kitchen even if your not a foodie! 😉

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of dried chili flakes
  • 1 cup of E.V. olive oil (you can use SOME vegetable oil in the mix if you have to)

     In a med size pot add your extra virgin olive oil. Turn the heat on to medium #6-7. Heat until you just see it starting to smoke a bit, not ALOT just a bit. Remove from heat for 5 minutes.
 Stir in your chili flakes, they will sizzle and crack, and sounds funny but they almost smell like chocolate, so don’t worry they are not burning! Let mixture stand until completely cooled off!

     When cooled put the chili oil in a glass mason jar, cover and sit on your counter ready to be used at anytime! This can be used in noodle bowls, chili, spaghetti sauce, any asian recipie, really anything you want to add a little heat to. You could even fry an egg in it.. Just use it sparingly because it’s hot.. We bought smaller jars at The Bulk Barn gave them away with Christmas gifts and they were a big hit!
