Recipe from Charlotte Culinary Expert, Heidi Billotto
3 dried cascabel chiles, stemmed, seeded and sliced
3 dried arbol chiles, stemmed, seeded and sliced
3 Tbsp. whole cumin seeds
2 Tbsp. granulated garlic
1 Tbsp. dried oregano leaves
1 tsp. hot smoked paprika

Place all of the chiles and the cumin into a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, moving the pan around constantly, until you begin to smell the cumin toasting, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Set aside and cool completely.
Once cool, place the chiles and cumin into a blender or food processor with the garlic powder, oregano, and smoked paprika. Process until a fine powder is formed. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
