Hot Chili Oil

  • by

This is the basic recipe for a Chinese style Hot Chili Oil. Super quick and easy to make and by making it yourself you can make it as hot or mild as you please.



  • 1 Cup Peanut Oil or Olive Oil (Not extra virgin)
  • 15 Dried Chilis
  • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil



  1. In a small sauce pan, heat over HIGH  the 1 Cup of Oil.  If it starts to smoke then turn off the burner.
  2. While tat is heating up, roughly chop up the chilis. Save the seeds and only toss the stems.
  3. Once the oil is hot, remove from the heat and add the chilis in. Also add in the Sesame Oil. Allow to sit until cool then add to a mason jar and this will be good for about a month in the fridge.
  4. It’s up to you as whether you want to strain the chilis out or not. I like to leave them in as they have a great taste and kick of heat.
