Picture of Spice Up Your Pepper Grinder

Not long ago when I went to refill my pepper grinder I accidentally grabbed the jar of hot pepper flakes and inspiration struck, it was one of those duuuuuh why didn't I think of this before kind of things

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need

You will need a refillable pepper grinder or search instructables I know there's at least one "ible" on refilling a disposable type
 get a small bowl or cup that will hold enough to fill your grinder
 a jar of peppercorns, you can use any color or combination you prefer
 A jar of dried hot pepper flakes

Step 2: The Mix

How spicy do you or your family like your food?  That will guide you on the ratio of flakes to peppercorns. I like my food real spicy so I'm going for about a 50/50 mix. Measure out the peppercorns and flakes into your container and shake to mix

Step 3: Ready, Set

Open your grinder, yours will probably be different from mine but not by much, yes, I know my grinder is small ! The price was right!
Trying to keep the mix mixed fill you grinder and put it back together

Step 4: Finish

OOOPS wait, I guess I already finished and used my final pic as well. All you have to do now is spice up your food !
