Homemade Chili Powder

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by LARavenscroft

A recipe I came across by accident in one of my cookbooks. I've never made chili powder before, nor have I looked on Zaar for a recipe. Heaven only knows why I haven't. The only chili powder that I can buy is very expensive (I have an allergy to black pepper and most brands say "spice" on the label which could mean anything) so I decided to try this one. I'll never buy chili powder again. You can adjust the heat by increasing or decreasing the amount of cayenne.

I have tried several different homemade chili powders and this one is by far the best. What I love about it the most is that I use it for a lot more than making chili and can use it for everything as a base and add more heat, more garlic powder, onion powder, etc. to the different dish I am preparing. I really like the fact that it has no salt. I have certain dishes that I use chili powder in that would be ruined with the additional salt.
