Instructions Checklist
  • Wipe off dried New Mexico chilies. Discard stems and seeds. Cut chilies into thin slivers. Put 2 teaspoons salad oil for each 1 cup (about 1/2 oz.) chili strips in a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium heat. Add chilies; stir until they smell toasted (they scorch easily). Pour onto towels and drain; chilies crisp as they cool. Use or store airtight up to 1 week.
