Look at that lovely color.
A small bottle (maybe 4 - 6 Oz bottle) of chilli oil will cost you anywhere between 3 and 4 dollars. It is much cheaper to make it at home. You can trial with different kinds of pepper.
And I made popcorn using this oil to get a little spicy popcorn. I used 2 TBSP of this chilli oil. When hot, added about 3/4 tsp of salt to the oil and dumped 1/3 cup of corn kernels. Kept on shaking to prevent burning. There were exactly 3 un-popped kernels and that is how neat the stove top popcorn popping is. I think I have seen more un-popped kernels in microwave popcorn. When you eat this popcorn, you get an after taste heat that will make you sweat. Not too hot but pretty spicy.
Enjoy. Pin It
