I ground 2 dried Ghost Chilies in our coffee grinder which produced about ½ Tablespoon of ground chili.. To clean out the coffee mill, wipe it clean with a damp cloth, then again with a dry cloth. Next grind either rice or salt and repeat the wiping with the cloths. Be careful when grinding any chilies, especially the Ghost Chili. Expect some sneezes to follow the process! And wash your hands well so no powder accidentally gets near the eyes!
Habanero Powder would also work in this recipe.
