Chili Powder

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

This uses paprika as a base (no weird ingredients). I mixed a half batch of this up to use in Tex-Mex Lasagna and it tasted great. From AHA's Low-Salt Cookbook.

This worked out ok but it was not as flavorful as the chili powder I buy at the store. I think in addition to the cayenne which gave it some heat it would benefit from some other ground chilis like Ancho or California to pick up the flavor. I do appreciate that it will save you a trip to the grocer if you run out.
