    Rita~'s Note:

    Make your own chili powder or flakes with those extra garden peppers be it jalapenos, thai, habanero or pepper of your choice. Be sure to use gloves when handling hot peppers. Be careful when grinding not to get any of the pepper dust into your nose and eyes. As they dry in the oven you'll find yourself sneezing from them. I've dried them whole you have to turn them it takes a little longer. Then you have spots that are not dry. It seems the skin keeps the moisture in. The amount depends on how many you dry.

    Units: US | Metric

    • as many as you have hot pepper (Cayenne, Habanaro, Thai or whatever chilies you have grown)
    • parchment paper


    1. 1
      I cut them in half or even quarters so the flesh is open and dries out faster and more even.
    2. 2
      Place them on a cookie sheet that has parchment paper on it in only one layer.
    3. 3
      I dry peppers at 200F degrees.
    4. 4
      Keep an eye on them and remove those that are dry as need be so they don`t burn.
    5. 5
      It can take 1-3 hours.
    6. 6
      You can crush them to make flakes or grind them to make a chili powder.
    7. 7
      Use a coffee grinder or food processor once they are cooled. And grind to flakes or powder.
    8. 8
      Store in a glass jar out of sunlight.

      This is a great way to use up some of my bumper crop of jalapenos (only thing I got alot of out of the garden this year). I dried my for about 5 hours and then used a mincer gadget I have to pulverize them. I used the powder in hamburgers so far and they gave it a really nice kick. They'll also be good for pizza :). I was able to get about 1 1/2 small jars full of powder from about 25 jalapenos!

      This is an amazing easy recipe to make your own chili powder/flakes! I may never purchase store-bought ever again, I had tons of hot peppers in my garden, I am so glad I noticed Rita's recipe, I think I have enough dryed chili flakes now to last me a few years lol! a word of caution, this stuff is 50 times stronger than the store-bought so use with caution! Rita thanks for sharing this recipe!...Kitten:)
