How to Rehydrate Dried Chili Peppers
Here is a simple method for rehydrating dried chili peppers. You can buy dried chili peppers in most grocery stores. They store longer on the shelf. Just grab one as needed.

Basically, you just have a few simple steps:

  1. Remove the seeds (some or most if you wish)
  2. Start a pot or tea pot of water to boil.
  3. Drop the peppers into a hot pan to roast them for just a moment (30 sec to 1 minute per side).  Be sure to give them a bit of a pressing down.  You could also put a plate on them to give some temporary weight.
  4. Once roasted, drop them into a bowl.  Cover with your boiling water.  Allow to steep for about 30 minutes.
  5. Once they are soft and pliable they are ready for use in whatever manner you wish.

TIP:  Depending on what you are using them for you could get away with steeping for 10-20 minutes.
