Introduction: Jalapeno Salt
I've been obsessed with jalapeno infused food items for a while and finally got around to dehydrating some peppers. This salt will be amazing on popcorn, meats, in margaritas etc.

Step 1: BoM
Something to grind the jalapenos with
Airtight storage container
4 tablespoons of dried jalapeno powder to 1 cup of salt seems to work well for a mild flavor. Increase the amount of jalapeno depending on how much kick you want.
Step 2: Grind
Grind the dry jalapenos into a powder. This can be done easily with a mortar & pestle. You can also add some salt to the mix and grind it with the jalapenos. Its okay if all of the pieces don't grind, small pieces add texture and more color.
Step 3: Mix
Mix the ground jalapeno in with your salt. Really, you can just shake the jar.
Step 4: Store
Store the mixture in an airtight container for about a week, shaking the salt daily to keep clumps from forming. The salt should last 2-3 months.
