Chili Chocolate Cupcakes

I found this recipe on a blog called Cupcake Bakeshop, which is now closed. I haven't tried it yet, but wanted to save it for safe-keeping. It calls for a specialty item, ground pequin chilies, but I will be using chipotle chili powder, as I already have that. Top with Chili Chocolate Ganache Frosting, which I will post seperately.
