If you read my post from a couple of weeks ago, you know that I made two chili oils in an attempt to see which was hotter.
After 2 weeks of marinating, with a stir now and then, I tried them both today with some pita bread.
I’m a bit disappointed to say that the red oil is a tad bit hotter with a much deeper pepper flavor. It’s not that I was hoping for the green. I wasn’t. I just expected one, if not both, to be really, really hot. Like… run to put your face under the kitchen faucet hot. They taste good, and have a little heat, but neither is three-alarm hot.
