Red Chile Oil Recipe – I am New Mexico

Red Chile Oil Recipe

If you’re looking for ways to spice up your life, look no further. Now, you can enjoy the flavor of your favorite chile with just about anything. I like cooking my eggs with this. It is a lot faster than making a whole batch of red chile just to have some eggs and a tortilla as a snack. Next, you can try making red chile popcorn….
Well, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy

Ingredients for Red Chile Oil Recipe

  • 2 Cups Finely Crushed Chimayo Red Chile or similar New Mexico red chile (remove stems prior to crushing/blending dry)
  • 2 Cups Vegetable oil

Red Chile Oil Preparation

Heat the oil in a pan to 350˚ F. Remove from heat, add red chile, and let stand until cool. Cover pan and let stand for 12 to 24 hours … the longer it sits the hotter it gets. Strain through a fine sifter then use as ordinary vegetable oil.
