Author Notes

One of the well known beer snacks in Beijing is the numbing-spicy peanuts. They are badly addictive: fried peanuts with a salty numbing kick. For entertaining this year, I've adapted the recipe to be healthier and just as tasty. Oh how I miss Beijing. Happy Chinese New Year! —FrancesRenHuang

  • 1 tablespoon chinese chili oil sauce (like Lao Gan Ma ????
