Better yet – make your own chile paste rather than using pre-ground powders. Pre-ground powders lose their flavor fast. Buy whole spices, toast, and then grind and use fresh. Worlds apart. This paste freezes in ice cube trays great and then you just pop a cube or two in with your meat.

Using fresh-dried (read: raisiny in texture) chiles is the best thing you can do for your tacos or chili recipes.

I got a banner-style flag as a gift last year and don't like it. Regular flags have the decided advantage of being compatible with a standard flagpole

i.e. with a regular flag you won't be hanging a banner up at a 45 degree angle like I do, which is dumb and bad.
