The oil is a widely used ingredient in all the cuisines of the world. Now imagine that we add to that subtle and soft flavor of the oil the flavors the Mexicans like the most... that is the chili and the lime.
This type of oil is known as compound oil because it is enriched with chili and lime. The beauty of this recipe is that in a short time you will see a beautiful glass jar filled with oil and in the bottom you will see many arbol peppers and lime chunks that interact with the oil that fill it with flavor.
It is a fact that the chili and lime oil will give a very special touch to any type of food that you will fry. It is possible that you will no longer require salsas thanks to that different flavor that your food will acquire however if you decide to use a salsa – the combinations that can be generated surely will be wonderful.
– Another very simple application can be given to this oil, that consists of tasting it with bread.
