An adopted recipe originally posted by Mean Chef. I have not tried this one yet as I have not yet found arbol chiles.

Oh thank you thank you! I just bought a huge supplies of dried chiles but didn't know how to make powder out of them. I want to give a batch of chili fixin's (#93173332) as gifts this year but I always just throw the whole pods in the pot. I've seen arbols online but found some locally at a small international foods market. They had a wide assortment of chile varieties and were much cheaper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The chiles should be toasted before grinding (one minute on a hot cast iron skillet or comal).
  2. When the chiles are cool, break them into pieces and grind into a fine powder using a spice grinder or coffee mill.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  4. Store in a jar.
