Chili Oil


Chili oil is one of the most widely used condiments in Asian food. It adds so much flavor, not just heat, to just about any dish. There are many ways to make chili oils, oftentimes using a variety of ingredients that lend complex flavors to the end product because it isn’t always just about the spice. Good chili oils are flavorful, too. And you can add it to just about anything.




  • 1 cup of cannabis infused canola, sunflower, or vegetable oil

  • ¼ red onion

  • 3 or 4 cloves of garlic

  • 1/3 cup Asian chili flakes

  • 1 star anise

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 1 teaspoon coriander

  • 1 tablespoon Sichuan peppercorn

  • Salt to taste




  1. Heat up a small saucepan on the stove, and add in the oil, garlic, red onion, star anise, cinnamon, coriander and peppercorn. Wait for the mixture to bubble lightly, but don’t allow it to bubble too much otherwise the spices may burn.

  2. Upon seeing some bubbles, reduce the heat to low. Allow the ingredients to simmer for half an hour, regularly mixing it so that they infuse instead of burn. Reduce or increase the heat as needed. You’re looking for an oil that gets some color without being too dark or burning.

  3. Once 30 minutes have passed, get the mixture off the stove and allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes.

  4. Add the chili flakes and salt into a ceramic bowl, then carefully pour the oil mixture over a sieve, strainer, or a cheese cloth. You want to add just the oil without any of the cooked spices.

  5. Mix up the spices and allow it to cool for around 30 minutes. Transfer to an air-tight glass jar for storing, and your delicious, fiery hot infused chili oil can keep for up to half a year.
