Red Chili Oil

When you ask for a pound of Arbol peppers at Caninos produce market expect to get more than you can probably use. I found this out a couple weekends ago. The bag I got of brilliantly red dried chili peppers was huge! The positive aspect of this problem is now I have to come up with fun ways to use these peppers. This is one that really worked out well. By the way the enormous bag of chilies was $2.50!

1/4 pound of Arbol dried chilies
6 smoked dried chilies
10 Garlic cloves
2 tablespoons salt
750 ml of grape seed oil

Take the stems off the chillies and put in a food processor. Grind until finely chopped. In a sauce pan heat grape seed oil in low heat until warm to the touch. Add pepper flakes and salt. Mince garlic in food processor and add to oil. Let simmer for 20 to 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Let cool to room temperature and transfer to some kind of container. Let marinade for two days and stain off oil.
