This is a great technique to add to your tool box. Not only do dried peppers add an amazing flavor profile to your dish but they are dried so they have a very long shelve life. You may want to use gloves when handling them especially the hotter varieties as they can leave a very spicy residue on your hands and you don;’want to touch anything tender ( if you know what I mean) after handling them. Save the oil that you toast them in and saute onions or other vegetables or just save and use a hot chili oil to brighten up vegetables or dipping sauces.
