Description

This chili onion crunch oil recipe is my “copycat” version of Trader Joe’s classic Chili Onion Crunch. It is so easy to make your own, and it only takes 5 minutes!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp dried minced onions
  • 1 tbsp dried minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Instructions

  1. Heat a small pan over low-medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the dried onions, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. Toast the spices for 2-3 minutes while occasionally stirring to prevent burning. 
  2. Add the toasted dried onions, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes to a bowl or jar with the paprika and salt. Top if off with ¼ cup of olive oil or more more as needed until the spices are covered. Mix well.

Notes

  • Uses: add to a bowl of ramen noodles, drizzle on soups, fried eggs or avocado toast!
  • Swap in smoked paprika for a smokey flavor!
