What is the Wendy's Chili hot sauce?

I love the hot sauce packets they give you at Wendy's to put in their Chili but I normally cook chili at home and I would love to know if anyone knows what that is? I'm thinking it's Asian Hot sauce that "Hot Oil" that what it is?

Found this on another site:

Chinese hot chili oil in a bottle is just like Wendy's packets. ...

Here's a recipe:

Chili oil makes an excellent accompaniment to noodles and dumpling dishes, and is the secret ingredient in many popular Szechuan dishes such as Bang Bang Chicken. To make the chili oil even hotter, increase the chili peppers or lower the amount of oil to 1/3 cup.

Yields about 1/2 cup

More Szechuan Recipes

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

* 10 - 12 small dried chilies (1 2 inches long) to make 2 tablespoons of coarsely chopped chili flakes
* 1/2 cup peanut, canola, or olive oil
* 1 tablespoon sesame oil, optional

1. Cut off the stems of the dried chilies and remove the seeds.
2. Chop the chiles into coarse flakes (it's easiest to do this by processing them in a blender for about 20 seconds).
3. Place the chili flakes in a heat resistant jar with a seal.
4. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high to high heat until it is starting to smoke. Continue heating the oil for 20 30 seconds. Remove the skillet from the heat. Wait 3 minutes, or until the oil has cooled to 225 240 degrees Fahrenheit (107 to 122.5 degrees Celsius.
5. Pour the oil over the flakes. Add 1 tablespoon sesame oil if using.
6. Cool and strain the oil. (If you like, save the chili flakes to use in other recipes).
7. Leave the chili oil for at least 1 hour to give the flavors a chance to blend (longer if adding sesame oil). Use as desired in recipes or as a dipping sauce. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, chili oil will last for at least one month.

EEEEK, that could mess up some cookies! ;) Where do you find the chili oil that looks like a vanilla bottle? What section of the grocery store is it in?

The chili oil I see here in Philly is sold in large bottles like old heinz ketchup bottles. The brande I have open now is called "china bowl select". I find it in the asian section.

I use it in my version of PF Changs dipping sauce. Its not too hot by my family's palate but its got a kick!!
