Chili powder is a spice, made from assorted chiles (like anchos and arbol chiles). It is generally a red or green powder, and used often in chili con carne, the stew involving meat, tomato products, sometimes beans, and assorted chiles. It is similar to paprika.


  • 6 ancho chiles, stemmed and finely chopped
  • 3 dried arbol chiles, stemmed and finely chopped
  • 2 tbs garlic powder
  • 1 tbs dried oregano
  • 2 tbs whole toasted cumin


  1. Give everything a run in a blender, food processor, or spice grinder until it's a fine powder.
