Hot and smoky chile salt

I’ve been keeping a secret from you. 

It’s not a secret I meant to keep…it’s just that it involved a branded chile salt, and, well, it just felt weird to be like “you have to go buy this one specific product” to make my perfect snack –  especially when there are only six ingredients and you don’t need any special equipment

(Also, I wanted an excuse to go to my absolute favorite specialty shop, but we aren’t going to talk about that.)

A culinary degree and two years of professional experience has not stopped Jessi from making stupid mistakes – she just makes them more efficiently. She habitually reads cookbooks before bed, loses track of time on Wikipedia, and yells at cooking shows like dads watching football. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband Jackson, five plants, and more cookbooks than a 600 square foot studio should hold.
