The biggest thing to know about this recipe is it is designed to be as hot or not as you want it. You can pick the hot sauce, and the type of peppers you use depending on how hot you want it. The Mongolian Fire Oil is deceiving in name. The oil adds mild warmth to the full mouth, not a flaming burst so do not worry about adding the full amount. A small taste on the tip of the tongue will show how not “HOT” it is.
