If you've never tried a homemade chili powder recipe I recommend you have a go. It's so simple, and the flavours and aromas it adds to your home cooking are superb! It can be as easy as buying some dried peppers or flakes and just grinding them, or using the recipe below to add herbs and spices to create something special. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)
What You'll Need: (makes about 8 tablespoons)
Half a cup of whole dried chili peppers (any variety)
2 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp black peppercorns
4 tsp paprika powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp salt
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store your homemade chili powder recipe in a cool place in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.
Note: To get even more flavour from the ingredients you could dry toast the peppercorns and cumin seeds for a couple of minutes before grinding and combining. Click here to read more about this recommended process. (Link opens in new window)
Ingredient Note: For the best flavours when making your powders, seasonings and blends, I recommend using a few whole spices. If you don't have them all available, just use pre-ground powders but halve the quantities. For example, 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds equals approx 1 tablespoon of pre-ground cumin. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
