In this article, we'll share some creative ideas for incorporating our chili oils into your snack game.
Spicy Popcorn with a Twist
Popcorn is a classic go-to snack, but with a drizzle of chili oil, you can transform this simple treat into a gourmet delight. Drizzle a small amount of Garlic Chili Oil or Avocado Chili Oil over freshly popped popcorn, and toss to coat evenly. The spicy, crunchy popcorn will keep you coming back for more!
Chili Oil Hummus
Hummus is a healthy and versatile snack option, and by adding a touch of chili oil, you can create a new flavour sensation. Stir a teaspoon of Garlic Chili Oil into your favourite hummus recipe, and serve with sliced veggies or whole-grain crackers for a satisfying snack.
Spicy Roasted Nuts
Roasted nuts are a filling and nutritious snack, and with the addition of chili oil, they become even more irresistible. Toss your choice of nuts in a small amount of Avocado Chili Oil, and then roast them in the oven until they're golden and fragrant. Enjoy the spicy, crunchy nuts on their own or as a topping for yogurt, salads, or grain bowls.
Chili Oil Veggie Dip
Upgrade your veggie platter by offering a spicy dip made with CC Sauce's chili oils. Mix a few teaspoons of Avocado Chili Oil into Greek yogurt or sour cream, and add your choice of herbs and spices for extra flavour. This dip pairs perfectly with fresh, crunchy vegetables for a healthy and delicious snack.
Spicy Avocado Boats
For a filling and nutritious snack, try making spicy avocado boats. Cut an avocado in half and remove the pit, then drizzle each half with a small amount of Avocado Chili Oil. Add a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lime, and scoop out the creamy, spicy avocado with a spoon or serve with whole-grain crackers.
Chili Oil Drizzled Cheese
Elevate your cheese platter with a touch of spice. Arrange your favourite cheese selections on a board and drizzle them with Garlic Chili Oil for a burst of flavour. The chili oil adds depth to the cheese's taste and makes for a unique snacking experience.
