Chili Powder

Commercial chili powder can be used for making sauces for tacos or enchiladas, salsas and dishes like chili con carne.  When using store-bought powder look at the labels to see what spices are included.  You can also make your own chili powder.  Here is a perfect version.


6 Ounces Dried Chiles (Mild, Hot or a Combination)

2 Tablespoons Ground Cumin

2 Teaspoons Ground Paprika

4 Teaspoons Salt

2 Teaspoons Garlic Salt

2 Teaspoons Oregano

2 Teaspoons Onion Salt

2 Teaspoons Fresh Dried Cilantro

Cut off the stems of the dried chiles with a knife.  Blend all of the ingredients with the chiles in a food processor or a blender until powdery.  Makes 2/3 cup of zesty chili powder.  Store in an air-tight glass jar.
