Chili Powder


Marshal Will Wingam:
Here's my recipe for chili powder. Bear in mind, this is a loose idea and the flavor changes with the types of chilis used in it. Lately, I've been leaving out the California chilis and going heavier into the Pasilla chilis. It also makes a very big difference if you start with dried chilis and grind them yourself in a blender. Have fun with it.

Chili Powder

Make into powder* in the blender:
4 oz Pasilla chili pods (Ancho chilies)

Mix with:
12 oz California chili powder
12 oz New Mexico chili powder
1 oz ground Arbol chili
5 oz ground Cumin Seed
1 oz Mexican Oregano

For brave souls that like hotter chili powder, add cayenne to taste or add a couple extra Arbol chilis.

*This isn’t going to turn into powder because it’s too resinous, but it will become the next best thing. It'll still keep for a fairly long time. I keep mine in quart mason jars for almost a year.

For enchilada sauce, mix 3 or 4 Tbs chili powder with 8 oz tomato sauce.

To make a good taco seasoning, use two parts ancho chilies to one part chili powder.

Ozark Tracker:
Marshal,  it sounds like you make chilli just about like my wife does,  she was raised out in the central valley of Calif.  but her enchilada sause is a little different.

she makes up a mix just like you're cooking flour gravy,  oil and add flour make a thick mix,  but adds a mix of the Calif & New Mexico chilli powder, cummin and oregano,mixed with water instead of milk, then makes it up just like a thin gravy.  sticks real good to the enchiliada's and fried rice. real good

Camille Eonich:
I gotta try this.


LazyK Pejay:
I want to make that also. I make this from Emeril and keep it in a mason jar. It is dry and will last for quite a while:

Emeril's Rustic Rub

8 tablespoons paprika
3 tablespoons cayenne
5 tablespoons freshly-ground black pepper
6 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons onion powder
6 tablespoons salt
2 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 1/2 tablespoons dried thyme

Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container.

Bam! Bam! Bam!
