Default Chili peppers ideas?

I've got half a bag of a variety of peppers, from long sweet peppers we call paprika to medium hot peppers and some thai scuds.
Any ideas on how to use these up/ preserve them would be great brethren!
Ive just done a few batches of pickles.
Maybe smoke them?
Whatchew got?
If you're saucing your brisket, I bet you're still putting lolly water in your spirits..

remove stems, smoke on pit (about 2 hours at low heat, do not char. you need about 2-3 lbs of peppers.

Pulse in food processor the following:

5 cans of diced tomatoes
1 onion
1 bunch of cilantro(no stems)
garlic to taste

1 cup vinegar
1/4 cup Kosher salt
1/4 cup sugar.
juice of one fresh lime

put enough vinegar in bottom of stainless steel pan/pot and dump in finely chopped onion, bring to boil. add other ingredients and boil on low until desired consistency is reached. Put in sterile Mason/Kerr jars and water bath for 10-15 minutes.

I like hotter peppers but suit yourself

Dry them out and into the coffee grinder, just remove the stems and it makes a great shake on anything.

I like to take the peppers and slice them. Take a slice and put a bit of cream cheese on the top, then wrap the piece in bacon with a toothpick to hold. (Bit tricky and time consuming, but worth it!) Then I put a piece of foil down on my grate and let them smoke, or if on a grill I use indirect heat. Judge doneness by the bacon. Let them cool and enjoy!!! I'm sure there's a common name for this recipe, as it's surely not my invention. I just know my family loves them.

slice and candy (pickle them), make pepper jelly, make hot sauce, dry and grind as suggested. The possibilities are only limited my your imagination!

I always have some that have been smoked. Some are frozen for cooking when fresh is wanted and unavailable. Think ice cubes... The last green tomatoes are a part salsa and chow chow alongside of the peppers. The green peppers are used in a vinegar based hot sauce for greens and beans. Ripe peppers are lacto fermented with garlic to make a red style hot sauce. And then there's pepper jelly... Oh yeah, forgot apple tomato chutney that needs some hot peppers. Stuffed peppers smoke well too. Gotta be a way to make pepper candy..

Like others have said whenever I've got a good deal on peppers I'll dry a bunch of them out in the dehydrator, and then I grind them down into chile powder.
Also pickle them for later uses as well. Like making pepper mayo or things of that nature.

When my wife's not home I dry mine in the oven, and also grind them for a shaker.
(The peppers burn her sinuses... mine were probably burned out as a kid.)
