If you grind your own chipotles, be sure to let the dust settle before opening your spice grinder. Just a friendly warning from someone who didnít. <cough, cough, sneeze> Ahem.

1/4 cup salt
1-2 teaspoons ground chipotle chiles
2 teaspoons dried orange zest

Mix all ingredients well with your fingers, a mortar & pestle or in a spice grinder, but be careful not to pulverize the salt. Taste and adjust seasonings, if desired. Store in an airtight container. Allow salt to sit for one day before using for flavors to combine.
