Making a basic home made chili powder free of artificial flavours, preservatives and colourings couldn't be easier! Buy a bag of dried peppers, add to your grinder and grind away. See the bottom of the page for more complex chili powder recipes.
The peppers I use in the video are birds eye and are pretty fiery! But that's the beauty of making your own, you can choose any you variety you like, from mild to hot to tongue burningly scorching!
What You'll Need: (makes about 6-7 tbsp)
1 cup dried peppers (any variety)
tbsp = tablespoon
Note: 1 cup = 16 tbsp
That's all there is to it! Store in an airtight jar and use within 3 months.
Here's a slideshow of how I made it, both fine and coarse...
