Serious Cooking: What to do with dried chiles?

My lovely girlfriend just returned from the southwest with dried chiles (whats the plural of chile?). Let me be clear though, a lot of dried chili's. Big bags of them. Throwing a couple into a stir fry would make the bags last a year!

Need some help from the community... What can I do with all of them?

Bags include:
- Arbol chili pods
- Arbol chili whole (which look exactly like the pods)
- Japanese chile pods
- Chile habanero
