      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!

      This is a very mild flavoured oil. I used 3 teaspoons of crushed pepper plus a quarter cup of dried whole chilies, and it still has very little heat compared to the level we're accustomed to in a chili oil. We really liked the flavours from the roasted garlic and ginger though, so next time I'll just add LOADS more chili (and try and strain it a bit better :)). Thanks Calee! Made for PAC Fall 2009.

      *This IS what I've been looking for* I drove myself nuts trying to find this in the store... I was so happy to have found your recipe. It's perfect! I added more crushed pepper cause I like it spicy too. This went terrific in my sauce for Shrimp Pot Stickers (Dumplings) Thank you, thank you for sharing this hard-to-find oil.... where I live anyway ;) (Made for Bevy Tag 8/08) *SUPER!!!!*
