homemade chili oil

you know when you go to your favourite pizza joint and they up the ante by giving you chili oil to drizzle over your already delicious pizza.
amazing.  i know.
dreams are made from chili oil.
skinny pants are not.
that is your life lesson for the day.

your other life lesson?
leave the skinny pants in the drawer and whip up an impossibly easy batch of homemade chili oil so that you can carry it with you in your purse or man-satchel (because that's completely normal, the chili oil not the satchel) and drizzle it on anything & everything in sight (again, completely normal)
you're welcome.

1/2 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
