I used this oil last night when I made Nimz' Grilled Asparagus With Balsamic Syrup, #237746. It has a great spicy flavor -- and gets hotter as it hits the back of your mouth. I strained out the pepper flakes because they kept coming out of the bottle when I poured the oil, and I wanted a clear oil. The oil won't get any hotter because I took out the pepper flakes, but I love it just the way it is anyway! Thanks for another good recipe, Nimz.
I made this concoction using some chipotles that I had smoked. What an awesome oil! This is my standard go to for all of my stir fry oil. Thanks for sharing..
Holy cow - this is amazing! I made this to use for your Grilled Asparagus With Balsamic Syrup and it was terrific! I also brushed some on slices of French bread, broiled, then melted some cheddar on top - yum! Pizza dough, chicken, burgers - I can think of so many uses for this - thanks for sharing the recipe!
