Thai Chili Infused Peanut Oil Recipe

Thai cooking uses a wide variety of hot chilies including the bird's eye chili pepper and Thai chili pepper. Infusing them into peanut oil is a great way to harness their fruity flavors and hot spices and make them easy to use in dishes whenever you want. You can alter the amount of chili peppers used, depending if you are looking for a mildly spicy oil or a hot-sauce caliber condiment with peanut oil undertones. Changing up the types of peppers used will also greatly alter the resulting flavor profile, as will substituting sesame oil for the peanut oil.
