How to substitute ancho or chipotle powders for whole dried chili peppers?
I have a hot sauce recipe that calls for 3 oz of whole dried chili peppers, and recommends a mixture like ancho and chipotle. I don't have dried peppers but have both ancho and chipotle powders. How much powder would I use instead? Note: the recipe excludes the seeds of the peppers and I'm guessing the powders include the seeds though it doesn't specify on the bottles. Thanks in advance.
