I made a delicious organic chili oil and liberally apply it to most everything edible. I filled a blender 1/2 full of these chili flakes, added some organic cayenne, organic garlic powder, organic onion powder and sea salt, covered it and then some with organic olive oil, blended it on high for a minute, and the result is just like fave store bought chili oil, which is difficult to find, expensive, and not organic:)
I purchase products from OM foods very regularly for my business.
