Facing Heaven Mild Crushed Chili (Chao Tian Jiao Sui, 朝天椒碎)
If you love Sichuan food and flavors but wish some dishes weren't so spicy-hot, then this is the crushed chili for you. Made solely of Facing Heaven Chili, this chili flake brings bright-red color and a mild, fresh heat to Chinese dishes.
Use these to make a mildly hot Sichuan chili oil or chili crisp and substitute in any recipe calling for Sichuan chili flakes or ground chilies.
For a hotter blend of Sichuan chilies, see our Fragrant Hot Ground Chilies. Unlike that blend of chilies, this single chili is not fried in oil before being ground, so it has a different texture, more akin to standard chili flakes, and more of a fresh taste than a toasty taste.
See The Mala Market recipe for easy Sichuan chili oil.
This crushed chili contains no additives or preservatives. Store in a cool, dark place or, for longer term, in the freezer.
