With gloved hands and using a sharp knife, slice open the peppers, removing any remaining seeds and the stems.
Run the knife through the dried pepper pieces to help them fit into a spice grinder.
Place the pepper pieces into the spice grinder.
Add the lime zest and sea salt into the grinder.
Once everything is in the spice grinder, pulse the mixture until it is finely blended.
Remove the seasoning, place it in a bowl or into a glass jar, and store it for later use.
