Look for ground chile pepper powder in the spice or Hispanic-foods section of your market. For sweet, mild flavor, use ground ancho chiles; for more heat, try caribe or smoky chipotle. Serving tips: Keep this well chilled while transporting. For best flavor and presentation, take ground chile in a separate container and sprinkle over salad just before serving.
