INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 4
    teaspoons dried chili flakes (, the same kind you put on pizza)
  • 5
    tablespoons vegetable oil

DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a sauce pan until it's just hot enough so that the chile flakes sizzle like crazy when you add them- but not so hot that they burn.
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Stir the flakes into the oil.
  • Let cool.
  • You can strain the oil or leave the flakes in it.
