1 tablespoon peanut oil
3 serrano chiles, minced
1/2 teaspoon Sichuan pepper, crushed
4 oz. bacon, minced
1/2 cup kimchi or other pickled vegetable
3 teaspoons soy sauce
12 oz. dried Chinese noodles, cooked as directed on package
1/2 recipe spicy peanut dipping sauce (recipe below)

Spicy peanut dipping sauce
1/4 cup chile flakes
2 tablespoons peanut oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 heaping tablespoons unsweetened peanut butter
2 teaspoons Sichuan pepper, finely crushed
6 green onions, finely chopped

Combine the ingredients in a small bowl and mix.

Dan Dan Noodles:

Heat a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the peanut oil, chiles, Sichuan pepper, and bacon. Cook, stirring frequently, until the bacon is crispy. Turn the heat down if the oil smokes. As soon as the bacon is cooked, add the kimchi and soy sauce. Cook for another 1 or 2 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and toss together with the cooked noodles and the dipping sauce.
