Homemade Ancho Chili Powder – TKDRecipes.com

Posted on | July 5, 2010 | No Comments

Once you make this simple chili powder you will never buy the dull, tasteless crap that passes for chili powder in a store again.  This chili powder will also transform an ordinary chili into a champion.

What I look for in a chili powder is a LOT of flavor.  I’m not looking to get much heat from the chili powder.  If a recipe calls for chili powder, it’s not looking to it to provide heat.

I make a big recipe of this and keep it in a large, empty herb bottle.  The kind you get at Costco or Sams.  Print the recipe and stick it to the bottle with a rubber band.

The key to this is finding the right dried Chilis.  The best batch I ever made of this was when I found the dried Ancho Chilis in the refrigerated section of the supermarket.  They still had a tacky feel to them from being recently dried.  Option #2- the big plastic bag of dried chilis.   I’ve tried this with the dried New Mexico Chili’s and it’s just not the same.

Experiment and find what you like best but I will guarantee that you will love it. Download Homemade Ancho Chili Powder Recipe – Mealmaster format (text).
