Store in an airtight container.

When I get ready to use the spice blend, I often finely dice Scotch Bonnet Chillies.

Scotch Bonnet Peppers

They will add a fresh twist and plenty of heat.  One tablespoon is all you will need to add to a recipe.  Whenever dicing hot peppers always be sure to protect your hands. I use gloves to dice and seed.  Keep skin contact to a minimum.  I wipe down my cutting board and then remove the gloves when finished.
