Expert Tips

Chili oil is vegetable oil that has been infused with chili peppers. Characteristically red in color, it adds spicy heat to Asian dishes. Look for it near other Asian products at your supermarket. Once opened, it can be stored for up to 6 months at room temperature, or longer if refrigerated.
