  • Blender or grinder


  • 1/4 cup chili powder like chile guajillo, chile ancho, chile de arbol, or chile california. Use a combination of your favorite dried chiles
  • 1 teaspoon salt kosher or table salt will work
  • 1 teaspoon citric acid
  • 1 teaspoon sugar optional


  • If using whole dried chiles, remove seeds from chiles and add to a blender.
  • Grind until it reaches a powder consistency.
  • Transfer to a small bowl and add the salt & citric acid. Mix well.
  •  Add sugar: this is optional if you want to give it a hint of Mexican candy or if your chili seasoning comes out too spicy for your taste.



Store the Chili Lime Seasoning in an airtight container in a cool, dry place so it lasts longer. It can last for years!
