Dried chiles, such as ancho, guajillo, and chipotle
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Place the chiles on a baking sheet and toast until dry and beginning to puff, about 5-10 minutes.
Take the chiles out of the oven when done, and when cool enough to handle. remove the stems and seeds.
Place the chiles into a spice grinder and then grind until powdery.
Stir in the cumin, garlic powder, oregano, allspice, and clove. Taste and adjust, if you wish.
Ancho chile is the foundation of classic Tex-Mex chili powder, so I always use those. Other chiles that are good are pasilla, guajillo, chipotle, and chiles de arbol. It's fun to experiment!
