Notes

Flavored oils can be pricey at the grocery store. I make my own chili oil by adding 1 Tbsp of red chili flakes to a small saucepan with ⅓ cup of olive oil. I heat the oil over low heat until almost simmering and then turn off heat, cover the pan, and let the oil infuse with the chili’s flavor. You can store the oil in a glass jar for up to a month.
