Chili salt

Add a little heat to your dishes by creating a spicy salt with hot chilies.



Puree the peppers in a blender or food processor. Mix with the salt and place in a clean jar. Place a lid on top. Shake every few days for a month (you can use it at any time during and after this process). Store on a shelf away from sunlight.
