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


  • After you’ve roasted and remove the skins from your red jalapeno peppers, reserve the charred skins. Your amounts will obviously vary.
  • Spread the skins out over dehydrator sheets. Use extra trays if needed.
  • 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.
  • Grind up the dried mixture with a mortar and pestle, or use a spice grinder.


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