  1. Toast the chiles and cumin seeds in a cast iron skillet for a few minutes. Don't let them cook too long and inhale the smoke, because you'll get a nasty chemical burn in lungs, nose and throat.
  2. Let the chiles and seeds cool.
  3. Place all the ingredients into a blender and blend on the highest speed you blender can dish out.
  4. Store in an airtight jar.
  5. Be sure to wash you blender carafe a few times after doing this or you fruit smoothy or margarita will taste like chiles.
