Being the condiment lover I am I love coming across a condiment that i can aply to a food that wouldnt otherwise require a condiment. Hot oil is one of these condiments. I find myself getting pizza for the sole purpose of consuming hot oil. Katie and I made a batch a few weeks ago and it went fast. This afternoon I found a great spice shop down on second ave and 6th street. They had a huge selection of peppers. I didn’t pick up any ghost peppers but I did grab a package of dried whole Arbol Chili peppers. Recipe and pictures below.
1 liter of olive oil
3 teaspoons of ground cayenne red pepper
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
2 sliced jalapeños
10 dried arbol chili peppers
Cook for 45 min.
