Dried chiles -- for how long are they good?

CindyJ | Jul 7, 2013 07:41 AM

I just "found" a stash of several different kinds of dried chiles. They're in their original cellophane bags, which have never been opened, and the bags have been stored in a tightly covered plastic tub. My best guess is that they've been in that container for at least two years. Can I still use them? (Or maybe the question is, do I WANT to use them?) Thanks!
