    Mexican chili powder is simply that...chili powder made from chilis grown in Mexico. There is also New Mexico chili powder (the best, in my opinion) and California chili powder. As for two-alarm chili peppers, as far as I know that just means peppers that have a noticable amount of heat, like jalapenos or a serranos. Most chili powders I buy come in either "mild" or "hot." Two-alarm chili powder would be the type labled "hot." As for English replacements, I really have no idea. Hopefully my explanation will lead you in that direction. If you want REAL heat, try habenero peppers or scotch bonnets. They would be like three or four alarms.

    That's what I know, or what I think I know anyway....hope it helps.

    Here is a page that shows some different kinds of chile powders that with some explainations on some so you can blend your own.
    You can also buy from international grocers, Hispanic grocers, or as Mean Chef likes to say, Penzeys (I am sure they have something). icon_smile.gif

    Oh, and I almost forgot to say, you can buy the whole dried peppers and roast them and grind them yourself, too. icon_smile.gif
