Homemade chili oil


This recipe is so easy to prepare and stores very well. I love adding it to soups and pastas.



Yield: 1.1 liter

  • 400 grams bird eye chili
  • 2 heads garlic unpeeled
  • 1 liter olive oil



* Slice the chilies thinly then place in a pot with the olive oil and the unpeeled garlic gloves on medium heat.

* When the peppers start to become translucent as seen in the picture keep a close eye as this is the point where it will start to change color into a darker shade very fast.

* The final color of the chili is as in picture.

* To stop the cooking process put the pot into a bowl of ice water half way to cool the oil down.

* Once cooled place in an air tight container and store in a cool place for up to two years.
