*HOW TO GRIND YOUR OWN DRIED CHILE POWDER: You can use any variety of dried chile you like. I typically use the Guallijo, California, or New Mexico variety. Take 5-7 dried peppers and cut off the stems. Remove as many seeds as you would like, this is where any of the heat will be. I usually take out most of them for a milder seasoning. Cut the peppers into small pieces that will fit in your coffee/nut grinder or small food processor. Pulse and grind until you get a powder. The longer you grind, the finer the powder will be. Store any unused powder in a sealable container.
