Organic Chili Powder

For several weeks now I've been drying Yellow Hungarian, Big Jim, Poblano, Habanero and Takanotsume peppers that I grew organically and today I used my coffee grinder to grind them into chili powder, seeds and all.  I only use the grinder for spices, so there's no concern that I'll wind up with spicy coffee.  The pepper made about 1 cup of a medium dark powder with just the right amount of heat and wonderful flavor.  Stephanie is making a pot of red chili using it right now, and dinner will be ready soon.  To avoid spoilage, the powder will be stored in the refrigerator.


  1. Red Chili sounds absolutely yummy! That would be a wonderful dinner for one of our Scrabble nights:-)
