A word of advice: Don’t shove your nose in the bag of bird's eye chili and take a deep whiff. It burns. It burns so much. Similarly, don’t eat them whole. Just stick to utilizing their heat and fruity flavors in your dishes. ~The Spice Jungle Team (Now located in our new burn ward!)

Thai bird chili is used extensively in Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, you should feel free to add these to any dish. We mean it. Any dish will welcome a bird’s eye chili. Just keep in mind it’s a medium-high heat pepper and will add a significant spice.

Prik nam pla (translation: chili fish sauce) is a popular Thai condiment served at nearly every meal and you’ll find it heartily spooned onto soups, meats, rice, and salads. To make your own take about 5 chilies and thinly slice them; cover them with a ½ cup of fish sauce, the juice of a lime, a heaping teaspoon of brown sugar, a 2 thinly sliced cloves of garlic. Mix together well, steep overnight, and it’s ready or use. Store in the fridge and use within 2 weeks. Some people like to add sliced raw shallots or cilantro stems, so feel free to add a bit of either if you so choose. Every family makes their prik nam pla a little differently so futz around with the measurements until you find them to your liking.
