  • 1/2 cup crushed New Mexican chile (I used Big Jim variety)
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle chili powder


  • Add ingredients to a mixing bowl and combine well. 
  • Use immediately and store leftovers in an airtight container along with your other spices. 


Take a taste after combining.  If it's too spicy for your taste buds you can dilute it by adding more of the New Mexican chile.  If it's too mild you can add more chipotle powder.
