Once upon a time, many moons ago, I had a chili oil in a restaurant that changed the matrix of my palette -sadly they were not able to sell it by the jar, no matter how desperately I begged. I have been in search of this flavor profile for the last few years trying all the chili oils on the market, I TRIED THEM ALL. When I came across CHILEE OIL at a Chicago Art Fair, I had already made up my mind that I would buy it before I even tried it because (OMG the LABEL). When I placed that little taste in my mouth, my taste buds IGNITED! THIS WHAT I HAD BEEN SEARCHING FOR! Take my money! This is not an exaggeration, THIS CHILI OIL will change your life, it's true, it goes on all the things - but honestly, eating it off the spoon like grandpa in the video, is my secret pleasure. Thank you!!! <3
The best chili oil on the planet is Chile! I've been obsessed since sampling it at Renegade Craft a couple of summers ago. Last year, I even gave a jar to everyone in my family for Christmas. It's that good! You'll be putting it on everything the second you try it. Seriously, I'm so obsessed.
i got a jar of the premium mild chilee a couple weeks ago, and i can't stop putting it on quite literally EVERYTHING i eat! it's so delicious, the crunchy garlic pieces are my favorite. i keep it on my counter for easy access, plus the packaging is so cute! i can't wait to gift it to my loved ones this holiday season
I have purchased Chilee Oil both online and Harvest Time Foods. This stuff is incredible - makes every ordinary meal extraordinary. I put it on rice, avocado toast, eggs, leftovers that need an extra kick, all sorts of stuff. It has become a staple condiment in our house. I can't recommend it enough, especially if you're local!
Found Chilee oil on accident at a craft fair and now I don't let my household be without it. I've gifted it to friends and have even converted others who were loyal to their chili oil. This is seriously the best stuff I've ever had on everything.
Love chilee oil so much! I've restocked multiple times and gotten multiple friends to become just as obsessed as I am!!
Fantastic chile crisp. I could (and sometimes do) eat it with a spoon.
Found them at the Hot Dog fest sampling out their chilee oil. Fell in love and have always kept some in stock in our kitchen? Goes well with everything !
After a friend of mine learned I was on the hunt for the perfect chili oil, she gifted me this! LISTEN TO ME WHEN I TELL YOU this is THE BEST ONE OUT THERE. I've tried LGM, Momofuku, Fly by Jing. ALL great options, but this is the one bottle I've already had to get MORE OF. The other ones are still 4/5ths full, hanging out in my fridge. Can't recommend this one enough! I'll be leaving Chicago soon and plan on buying this in BATCHES before I go.
Don't think twice and get yourself a Chilee oil jar (or two). Goes well with virtually anything - fried rice, stir fry, soup, pizza, pasta, you name it! This chilee oil has become a staple item in my pantry ??
the best chili oil i've ever had!
We make our chili oil in micro batches. The name originates from our business starting up in Chicago (CHI-TOWN!) and in honor of Grandpa Lee immigrating from South Korea to Chicago to find a better life for his family; and now seeking better flavor!
Our blend of spices reflects the traditional Chinese chili oil but has a broader range of applications not just for the Chinese palette. The moment you open the jar, the aromatics will fill your senses like no other chili oil out there. No sugar added! The sweetness comes from the caramelized shallots.
