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.
