Alton Brown's Chili Powder

"I have been using this recipe for a year or so, and it tastes great. Makes chili taste like chili and is awsome in mexican cooking. Often times I can't find all the dried chiles listed here, so I'll just mix and match, but keeping the ratio roughly the same."

  • Toast the chiles and cumin seeds in a cast iron skillet for a few minutes. Don't let them cook too long and inhale the smoke, because you'll get a nasty chemical burn in lungs, nose and throat.
  • let the chiles and seeds cool.
  • place all the ingredients into a blender and blend on the highest speed you blender can dish out.
  • store in an airtight jar.
  • be sure to wash you blender carafe a few times after doing this or you fruit smoothy or margarita will taste like chiles.

    We use Alton's recipe, too, but with one change: we use ground chipotle instead of the smoked paprika for a more complex chile taste along with the smokiness.
