It sounds wonderful, but it isn't cheap on Amazon (mostly because of the shipping, I guess). I'm trying to find it locally, but haven't been successful. Is it worth the effort and/or price?

According to their website, the only place where it's sold in NC is at Dean & Deluca's in Charlotte.

Yeah, I saw that on the website. I'm hoping the list hasn't been updated.

But my REAL reason for asking is to see if any of you guys have tasted it.

I buy this product at my local Asian market, costs around $1.00 a jar.

Thanks but that's not the same. The product that I'm referencing is more Mexican than Asian.

From their website: Chile Crunch unites the Aztec, Mayan, Spanish, and French influences that make Mexico so magical. Iíve packed them all into one deliciously addictive crispy mix of spices, heat, and smoke. Add a rich blast of fresh roasted chiles, garlic, onion, herbs, & spices sauteed in canola oil to elevate your salsa, guacamole, tapenades & more!C

Asian Chile oil description: Slightly spicy sesame chili oil with crunchy garlic, sesame seeds, and crushed chili peppers.

Hey, JK, I've never tried it (sounds delicious, though) but I found a few less expensive sources for you:

Direct: Order Chile Crunch
Another (even less): https://gwsupplyco.com/chile-crunch/

Of course I don't know what the shipping costs will be.

Yeah, it's like Amazon. Seven bucks to ship one bottle. But there's some VERY cool sounding stuff on that site!



Contacted them and the only retail place in NC is in Charlotte. That's 2.5 hours from me. Sadly, I guess I'm not gonna get any of this stuff.

$20 for one bottle? That's pricy. As with anything like this you can make your own with better ingredients. You can substitute something else for the crappy canola oil.

This type of sauce is called "Salsa Macha" in Mexico. The only thing I don't see in these recipes is the onion but you could easily add granulated, dehydrated or even fresh minced onion to the mix.

I would also suggest using milder chiles if you cannot handle that much heat.

Here are three different recipes

The macha recipes look interesting, but they all include some kind of nuts. I don't see any kind of nut in the stuff I was asking about.
