Adored this! Made with my own dried habaneros' and poblano's. I followed this exactly, and it was even more wonderful because the taste, fantastic! The ease of putting together - unbelievable, had everything on hand, and this took really no time to prepare. Mine was smoky, favorable, and excellent on ribs. I am ready to use it all summer long now! Made for *Paprika Spice Month* French Forum March 2010
This is exactly what I have been looking for - a recipe to make my own chili powder using whole ingredients that I grind myself. Dried chilis are sold readily where I live and they look delicious, but I never know what to do with them. This is the perfect excuse to buy them. Looks awesome! I can't wait to try it.
This is one hell of a chili powder! It is so smokey, so spicy and really needs to come with a heat warning. LOL Love the wonderful composition of flavours in this. Its not only hot, it has a great body of aroma. The garlic, onion and oregano add a wonderful taste to the heat from the chilis. I scaled the recipe back to 1 oz and that will be enough for me for a while I guess as I wont need much of the powder to flavour dishes to my heat liking.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Rita!
