Recipe by Wing-Man

Custom blend your own chile powder by picking your peppers and grinding away. Actually a blender or food processor will do it for you. Start with a single type of dried pepper such as anchos (mild), chipotles (medium) or habaneros (hot), or pick a blend for complexity. You can adjust the number of peppers according to how much you use in 6 months. I had to have at least 2 ingredients in this recipe for it to be excepted. The servings are JUST a number.
