Making chile powder from dried chiles

kfordham281 | Jan 30, 200907:56 PM     13

I've got a recipe that calls for cascabel chile powder. I wasn't able to find it, however I was able to get some whole dried cascabel chiles. My question is, how do I make the cascabel chile powder from the dried chiles? I'm assuming you toss them in a coffee grinder (not used for coffee of course) and grind until powder. But are you grinding the whole chile or the chile w/o seeds, or am I totally wrong and you do something else?

Any help is much appreciated! This is my first post on this site too. Googling always leads me here.
