1. The first step in making this spicy seasoning is to remove the stems and seeds from the chilies. 2. You can do this by cutting each chili down the middle, or by removing the stem with your fingers and scraping out the seeds with a small spoon or paring knife.
3. Once you've removed all of the seeds and stems, you'll need to dry the chilies out completely. 4. You can do this by leaving them on a flat baking sheet in a low oven overnight, or by spreading them out on a rack somewhere warm and sunny until they are completely crisp.
5. If you don't have enough space to do this properly, using a food dehydrator will work just as well. 6. Once your chilies have dried completely, simply pack them into a clean jar and grind them up using either a spice grinder or blender.
