Asian chili powder 辣椒粉 (là jiāo fěn)

Find this spice made of pure ground dried red chiles in the spice section, or make your own by grinding dried red chiles into a fine powder using a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle. This spice is different than regular chili powder which is often a mixture of many different spices.
