I found smoked paprika in our local supermarket's bulk section. I used this chili powder for this recipe from Taste of Home: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Rainbow-Vegetable-Skillet

The recipe worked really well. I had a Hubbard squash the size of a basketball, and the recipe tasted really good. I have noted the observation about the proportion of Paprika to cumin in one comment below, and if necessary will adjust the amount of cumin when I make chili tonight.

I found it to have WAY too much paprika, and I only put 4 T of paprika rather than 6 T in a doubled recipe. 18x as much paprika as cumin? That's unheard of! I also didn't care much for the turmeric. Makes good Indian food, not great chili.

Excellent-Thanks so much! I used 4 dried red chilis with the seeds removed. This adds an incredible amount of flavor to any dish calling for chili powder. My boyfriend is a total wierdo and insists that everything should be storebought so I just mixed this up and put it in the plastic commercial container. He'll never know and think it's just my fabulous cooking! Muahahahahahahaha!

We can't really get "chili powder" (i.e., the spice blend referred to as Chili Powder in North America) in Australia. Chili Powder here, is just powdered chiles! So I have to make my own. Its hard to rate this as you can't really taste it on its own, but this has been working out just fine for me.

WOW! Can not believe how good this is compared to the store bought chili powder. I used this in my chili and I could tell the difference. Thanks for a great recipe.

I have been looking for the perfect chili powder recipe to make with my home dried peppers. This one is pretty good but it is a bit too heavy on the turmeric for my tastes. I used dried habaneros with the seeds included ground finely in a coffee grinder for the dried hot peppers and I left out the cloves. I also doubled the cumin because I love cumin! All in all this was a decent recipe but I think I will keep trying other recipes.
