with or without seeds?

Postby krshome » Wed Dec 11, 2013 7:21 pm

I just bought every type of dried chile pepper that my supermarket sells to make some chile powder. My question is grind with or without the seeds? I have searched the net and some say get ride of the seeds they are bitter, others say its part of the powder and grind the whole thing. Whats the norm here for this?

I have usually ground with seeds - just a personal preference I suppose.

The seeds add heat.

Caveat that with, if yet gonna steam the pods to make enchilada sauce (better than making it outta powder) then scrape out the meat to make a paste and discard the skins and seeds.
