Recipes with Chili Powder
What is referred to as chili powder in the U.S. is actually a blend of spices. It contains various ground chili peppers (such as ancho or chipotle peppers) in addition to cumin, oregano, dehydrated garlic and sometimes salt.
Chili powder can be milk, medium or hot, depending on the types and amounts of chili peppers used. It adds great flavor to a lot of meat dishes, like beef chili or pulled chicken. Chili powder also works great with vegetables and seafood, such as this Shrimp Coconut Soup.
You can either make your own chili powder or you can buy it in a spice shop.
