This week in my CSA share I got three stems full of cayenne peppers that were partially dried. What the heck was I to do with dried peppers? Well after a bit of research I decided to make my own chili powder. I have been moving away from the traditional spices because there are all sorts of chemicals and preservatives in them. I have bought a few organic spices that we use often (cumin, garlic, cinnamon and parsley).
1. Cut off the tops of the peppers and take out the seeds (unless you want it really hot)
3. Shook out any remaining seeds :)
- 1Tablespoon cayenne powder
- 2 Tablespoons cumin
- 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons oregano
- 1 teaspoon cloves
