Recipe by shadetree cook
This is a copycat version of the famous Gebhardts Chili Powder. Your chili powder may taste a little bit different than Gebhardts (if you have bought it and know how it tastes) it depends on the potency of the ingrediates you buy. I have found around here that the Freds Dollar store spices are very potent. And better than the high namebrand stuff you pay 4x the money for. Hope you enjoy!!
Top Review by Chef I'll Never Tell
Gebhardt was famous for grinding the dried chilis into a powder. This was his base. This recipe lacks that. For hot chili - use New Mexico powder (and omit the red pepper). For mild, use Ancho with or without red pepper or crushed chili seeds. Paprika, Cumin, salt, Mexican Oregano, freshly ground coriander seeds, black pepper and celery salt will give you a blend that is just like the store kind.
