Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Dried Peppers- guajillo (ancho, and chipotle, seeded)
  • 1 Lime (zested)
  • 2 tsp. Coarse Sea Salt

Instruction:

  1. PLEASE NOTE: I highly recommend wearing gloves when working with the dried peppers! This is just a precaution.
  2. With a sharp knife, slice open your peppers and remove the seeds and stems. I use about 1 cup of dried whole peppers for this recipe which will yield about a half cup ground.
  3. Run your knife through the dried pepper pieces to help them fit in the spice grinder. Place them in the base.
  4. Zest your lemon and add it into the grinder fresh. You can also use dehydrated lime or citric acid in place of the fresh lime zest.
  5. Finally, add the salt.
  6. Once everything is in the spice grinder, pulse the mixture until it’s finely blended.
  7. Remove and place in a bowl or into a glass jar and store for later.
