Spicy Suan La Fen Soup Noodles

Once the noodles are done, the next part to making China's wildly popular hot sour soup, or Suan La Fen Tang, is the soup itself. You might be surprised but simmering chicken stock is the base of the red hot, vinegary soup. It's only overshadowed by show stopping flavours of buzzing Sichuan red pepper oil, and the sharp zap of black vinegar. Of course, the proportions are flexible, so play around with it if you want more heat, less vinegar, and so on. What pulls this whole thing together is a spoon of smooth sesame oil that gives it a nutty, aromatic heaviness that mellows out the heat and sour.
