Chili Powder, Hot
Chili Powder is a spicy mix of several types of dried, ground chile peppers, blended with garlic, salt, and cumin. Well into adulthood, I mistook chili powder for powdered chile -- until I realized that there are dozens of different *kinds* of chiles from which chili powder can be made.
As it turns out, Chili Powder is a uniquely American spice blend, first made popular here back in the 1890s. Allspice Online's HOT Chili Powder is for those who like it hot, hot, hot! Hot Chili Powder combines several different chiles: Ancho chile for bright color and flavor, with chile de Arbol for heat, along with garlic, paprika, salt, and cumin. See? Not just powdered *chile* peppers, but a rich blend of powdered ingredients for making *chili*.
A rich, flavorful heat for chili, enchiladas, and many other Mexican and Southwestern dishes. For a new approach to the same old burger, blend a tablespoon of Hot Chili Powder with 2 lbs of lean ground beef before you make burger patties. Top the cooked "chili burger" with cooling guacamole and a slice of crisp red onion. Get ready for the sweat!
