Phantom Chipotle Salt / Sal de Chipotle Fantasma
1 cup of salt
1½ teaspoons of Smoked Chipotle Pepper powder (my chipotle powder is made with smoked & dried Jalapeños, seeds and all.)
¼ teaspoon of Smoked Ghost Pepper powder (or more if you can take the "heat")
Add all ingredients to a jar and shake well to blend. Done!
This salt can enhance the flavor of just about anything. There is just enough back heat with a pleasant overall smoky flavor. This would be good on steaks, popcorn, eggs, grilled corn on the cob, potato salads, etc. Use on just about any meat, vegetable, or soup, guacamole, salads, even on the rim of a Bloody Mary or Margarita glass.
