When I couldn't find any chile limon seasoning to purchase at the local market, I decided to prepare my own.
2cupschile de arboldried or chile japones
2chile guajillodried or 1 chile ancho
1 1/2teaspoonssour saltcitric acid
Kosher salt to tasteI added about 3 1/2 teaspoons
Remove any stems from dried chiles. Remove the seeds only from the large dried chiles, not the chile de arbol. Place the dried chiles to a skillet. Heat to medium/low heat and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, turning often. You just want the peppers to become slightly aromatic and dry out a little more. You will do this in batches so you don't overcrowd the pan.
Also in batches, grind the peppers to a coarse grind using a spice grinder or coffee bean grinder. I only use my coffee grinder for spices, lol!
Combine the ground up chiles with Citric acid(sour salt) and kosher salt to taste. Keep store in an airtight container. Makes about 1 cup. My favorite way to enjoy the chile limon seasoning is on fresh fruit.
Tips~ I only use my coffee grinder for spices. They are fairly inexpensive, so I would suggest using it only for spices.
