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.
I can't review this yet, because I've not yet used it. I am unemployed at the moment,and things are tough around here,but I have every herb and spice known to man, so I made a batch of this. I think it will be good in our chili (which tends to be sweet due to our fresh and roasted tomatoes) and I have enough leftover for a spicy popcorn. I did add al little salt, and pulled back on the pepper a little., because i used habanero. (I like it HOTT!) thank you for the recipe, though, oh! And I threw in a few red pepper flakes, because that's always in the packets. If this works for us you will be a hero. I just wanted some proportions, and I'm glad that you took the time to work them out.
Even though I'm a black pepper lover, I don't really think it belongs in chili powder, so I like this a lot. I also like the fact that it's salt free. I halved the cayenne because my son is a spice wimp. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
I've been looking for a really good salt-free chili powder for quite a while, but none stood up to my old favorite brand, not even the Penzy's version. BUT this one is a winner! No more searching or store-bought for me. Thank you for a simple solution in this winner of a recipe!
Perfect. I used the entire result from this recipe to one pound of ground turkey (for turkey tacos).
Thanks for sharing this recipe. I have not tested it out yet, but I am SO excited to find homemade chili powder as my husband is allergic to garlic and every chili powder at the store has garlic in it. This is easy, I can just simply omit it. Finally we can have my homemade chili and sloppy joe's!!
Thank you for this recipe! I used it tonight making spicy oven fries and it was great! I won't be buying chili powder anymore! I also make my own taco seasoning. I like to know what is in my spices...
I have to agree with the other reviewers....love the fact there's no salt or black pepper in this mix. This is the only one I'll use from now on and I don't have to buy it at the store anymore. Thanks!!!
While preparing to make a chili recipe for the Fall 2011 PAC I realized I didn't have enough chili powder. After looking I found this and I must say this is so much better than store bought. Thanks for posting this great recipe.
Great taste and so easy, and best of all, NO ADDED SALT! Just the right amount of heat for us. Used it to make a pot of chili. Made for Spring 2011 PAC game.
