  • Use a damp paper towel to wipe the surface of each dried chili clean. Place on a baking sheet and toast in a 200 degree oven until the chilies are completely crisp and fragrant.
  • Toast the cumin seed until fragrant, but be careful not to burn them.
  • Remove the seeds from the chilies, then add them along with everything else to a blender, spice mill, coffee grinder, the dry blade of your vita mix, small food processor or spice grinder. Blitz until the spice mixture is a fine powder. You may have to do in batches. Protect your eyes and lungs by avoiding the dust.
  • Use this chili powder recipe immediately for best flavor, or store in a small, air tight sealed glass container.
