  • Discarded skins from roasted red jalapeno peppers. I used the skins from 1 pound red jalapenos.


  1. After you’ve roasted and remove the skins from your red jalapeno peppers, reserve the charred skins. Your amounts will obviously vary.
  2. Spread the skins out over dehydrator sheets. Use extra trays if needed.
  3. Dehydrate at 125 degrees F. for 8-10 hours, or until the skins are completely dried through. They should be very crumbly to the touch with no moisture anywhere.
  4. Grind up the dried mixture with a mortar and pestle, or use a spice grinder.

Recipe Notes

Use as you would any seasoning blend. Makes about a quarter cup or so.
