California Heat Chili Oil
Makes 1/2 cup
"California Heat is a versatile spice blend — make a chili oil with it by gently warming the spices in a neutral oil (we like avocado or grapeseed oil), just until it starts to sizzle. Drizzle the oil on eggs, over yogurt to make a dip, on your pizza, in soups, stews and noodles. It goes with so many savory dishes."
½ cup neutral oil
3 Tbsp California Heat spice blend
In a small saucepan, stir the oil and California Heat spice blend over medium-low just until the oil starts to simmer and become fragrant with the spice blend, 30 to 45 seconds (you don’t want the spices to burn). Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks. Bring to room temperature before using (the oil might solidify when chilled).
