Finely chopped garlic to taste (the lady who posted this used 2 tbsp, I used 4)
Shredded chile to taste (she used 1 dried arbol chile, I used 2)
Pinch of salt
Mix garlic, chile and salt in a metal container and place on a potholder. Heat oil in a small pot until it barely begins to smoke. Remove oil from heat and pour over garlic mixture. Allow to cool.
This can be used in salad dressings, brushed on toasted bread, in marinades etc. Keep it in the fridge to avoid problems.
