We heat dried chili peppers until their flavors are unleashed, then douse them with buttery, late harvest olive oil and set it to steep. Our Hot Chili extra virgin olive oil has just a touch of heat with a depth of nutty, chili flavor and gorgeous color that is irresistible.
Essential in a stir-fry, great in scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, and an easy garnish for tacos, grilled corn, pizza, or any dish that needs a touch of heat and color. As always, our olive oils are all first- and cold-pressed, and grown herbicide and pesticide free!

I use this in conjunction with the lemon oil to make a spicy lemon pasta sauce. I add crushed garlic, red pepper flakes and fresh Italian parsley, and it is always a hit! I also use it to spice up Thai recipes!
