I think the flavors were too overpowering for the snap peas. I'll just keep making my snap peas more simply.

Just a bit oily...will cut back a little on the oil the next time. We enjoyed these snap peas, and they really are a snap to prepare (no pun intended).

pretty good...couldn't find chili oil...so I used a little olive oil and cayenne pepper instead...tried it...didn't have a whole lotta flavor...threw in some garlic and onion...and it turned out...

Delicious! I halved the chili oil, but followed the recipe otherwise. They came out perfectly...will def be making these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

I omitted the chili oil because I don't like spicy food- but crisp and excellent!

This was good, but when I added the garlic and onions and sauted all together I was told it tasted "bitter". I enjoyed it, but my company didn't. Oh well, lesson learned.
