Love making my own spice mixes. We use chili powder all the time at our house. Made for I recommend.
This was a life saver in a pinch! Thank you for sharing! Update (7-15-12) - it's been some time but this is my absolute GO TO recipe for chili powder. I have found that we are not overly fond of oregano -- and reducing the amount in the recipe made this a perfect match for us! Awesome adaptability!
Like everyone else, I discovered I was out of chili powder and this came to the rescue. I will increase the cayenne a bit next time, because I like it hot! Thanks for saving my night.
I have made this several times and it is perfect, it has made all of my recipes that call for chili powder taste even better. Put everything in a little mason jar and give it a shake! Highly recommended.
Halfway through making a pot of chili I realized I had very little chili powder, so I made your recipe, and voila!--it made great chili. I like the fact that I always have these ingredients on hand, and I will use this from now on. Thanks!!
Can't get chili powder where I live and this works great.
I have needed a chili powder recipe for a while due to allergies. Reduced cayenne and added white as per princess buttercup. It was perfect! Thank you so much!!
Oh, man!! Like Dreamer in Ontario I was out of Chili Powder. This is SPOT ON!! Thanks, Mille!
You're a life saver. I started making dinner and discovered that I was completely out of chili powder. I only had enough paprika on hand to make a quarter of this recipe but it was enough to get me through. This is an excellent chili powder. Thank you for sharing.
like so many other cooks I ran out of chili powder on a night the snow was flying. I did not want to get on the roads. I mixed this up and won't buy the store mix again. I really like being able to tweak spice mixes to my taste.
