Recipe by Rita1652
READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
YIELD: 1 jar


  • as many as you have hot pepper (Cayenne, Habanaro,Thai or whatever chilies you have grown)
  • garlic, chopped 2 to 4 to a cup of chopped peppers


  • I cut them in half or even quarters so the flesh is open and drys out faster and more even.
  • Place peppers and garlic on a cookie sheet that has parchment paper on it.
  • In only one layer.
  • I do at 200 degrees.
  • Keep an eye on them and remove those that are dry as need be so they don`t burn.
  • It can take 1-3 hours.
  • Grind the pepper and garlic to make a chile powder.
  • Use a coffee grinder once they are cooled.
  • Store in a glass jar out of sunlight.
