@shain, how thoroughly dried are those chilis? I've had chilis dried until just slightly rubbery, and others so crisp that they shattered when I rolled them between my fingers.  Do they have to be brittle in order to process them as you're doing?

 

It's hard to describe, not exactly rubbery, but not crisp, you can bend them, but you can also break them apart (but better not do so with bear hands). They were fridge dried for a month or so. My weak food processor does a decent job grinding them, and I don't bother removing the seeds.
