Welcome back to my Recipes With Chili Oil Series! Can’t believe it’s already Day 4 after sharing my Homemade Chili Oil recipe. So it’s about high time I whip out my spin on the age old classic fried rice. And it’s a Quick Meal that only takes 15 minutes or less!
The best thing about fried rice is that it’s very forgiving. You can add anything you’d like while tailoring it to your taste. So adding chili oil is like my own personal cheat code, and I cannot get enough of it! This Chili Oil Spam Fried Rice is a spicy feel-good dish that’s pretty effortless to make and takes the stress out of any last-minute preparations.
We always have leftover/day-old cooked rice that’s enough for us to fry. But if you’re using freshly cooked rice, I would recommend to pop it in the freezer for about 30-60 minutes before frying. That’s because frying rice that’s freshly cooked can turn it quite mushy, and not end up with the best texture.
Here are some other fried rice recipes to try:
