After consultation with Torgo, I made a batch of his TorgOil, an infusion of chipotle chiles in olive oil.
It’s a wonderful mix, the hot smoky chiles in the oil. I only had one minor injury while chopping up the dried chipotles in the Cuisinart, when I got too close and inhaled a bit of it. Whoo-aw, that’s some spicy atmosphere.
The finished product is full of rich olive oil flavor and smoky, smoky chipotle burn. Woohoo!
