Not enough stars for this recipe! I can't believe how easy it is. My BF usually dumps the whole jar on his food when we go to dim sum or pho. I have tried purchased chili oil at the market but have never been impressed with it. This beats them all! I used 1 1/2 oil and 1/2 cup of crushed chilis and it came out extra spicy! The oven gives the chili oil a somewhat roasted flavor. Thank you so much Calee for this recipe I'll make again and again!
