Reconstituting Dried Chile Peppers

Fill a small 1-2 quart saucepan with water and bring to a boil over high heat.  Use a larger saucepan if you are reconstituting more than 6-8 peppers.  Remove the pan from the heat.  Add the peppers to the hot water and allow them to soften/reconstitute for about 20-30 minutes.  Drain and use as directed.

Note: Always discard the bitter soaking water.

Storage for dried chile peppers
