Yo yo yo, how about that spicy Lao chili oil?

Everyone has been pestering me incessantly to post something new, so I found something to say.

I recently re-created this Lao hot sauce with tasty results. It's probably a little chunky some, but kabam, what flavor. Secret ingredients: shallots, man, shallots. And gobs of chili. It's similar to Lao Gan Ma Chili Sauce, but WAY better! I recommend trying it on everything that seems like a good idea.

My recipe? What? Inconceivable! You'll have to wait for my next drivel-fest, Some of These. Yes, I admit I am trying to focus my next book on Southeast Asia. Let's see if I can keep up my usual fantastic momentum. Until then, let your fingers make sweet love to your search engine of choice; look for something like "homemade chili oil recipe." You can do it, Duffy Moon.
