Homemade Chili Oil

Much less cost than store bought and can be made in five minutes or less.


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. dried crushed red pepper flakes


Combine oil and crushed red pepper flakes in a small saucepan. Cook over very low heat until oil reaches 180 degrees F. The amount of time will depend on whether you increase the amount of ingredients. For this amount it is only a couple of minutes. Keep an eye on it and do not allow oil to smoke or burn!


Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Transfer to a small lidded glass jar or bottle and refrigerate for up to one month.

Yield: 1/2 cup

Thank you once again for such great tips. I use this oil but hate paying the high price. Now I can make my own.

WIsgal, not knowing what kind of foods you like perhaps you could simply type "international recipes with chili oil" into your search engine :-) It's used in many Asian, Latin American, Caribbean, and Italian recipes :-)
