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. Our Medium Chili Powder is for those who like it a more mild approach to chili. Medium Chili Powder combines several different chiles: Ancho chile being the primary flavor, 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 medium heat for chili, enchiladas, and many other Mexican and Southwestern dishes. For a new approach to the same old burger, blend a tablespoon of Medium 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.
