Pair sweet chili sauce with chili oil to get a sweet heat for this ham-and-shiitake rice dish.
Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat and then swirl in 1 tablespoon of the oil. When the oil begins to smoke, add the egg and swirl the skillet to make a flat egg pancake that’s only half set, about 10 seconds; scoop out onto a plate.
Add the remaining tablespoon oil, then add the ham and shiitakes and cook, stirring constantly, until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper, sweet chili sauce, ginger, soy sauce and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring constantly, until the pepper are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.
Add the rice, stirring to break up any clumps, and spread it out in the skillet. Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Return the egg to the skillet and cook, stirring and breaking up the egg, to mix it in thoroughly, about 1 minute. Season with additional salt if needed. Stir in the chili oil, sprinkle with the scallions and serve.
