Homemade Chili Powder

You never quite know what you are getting with store blended chili powder. This is a blend I like for my own chili powder. It does not have much heat, is not heavy on the cumin, yet provides a good, rich depth of seasoning. It can be used with other spices for many South and Central American dishes.

Makes a scant third-cup.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp dry cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp plain paprika
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne powder

Directions:

  1. Place the cilantro in a mortar and pestle, spice mill, or food chopper and process it until fine.
  2. Place cilantro in a small bowl, and add the paprika, garlic powder, cumin powder, and cayenne. Mix all ingredients well.
  3. Place in a tightly capped spice jar.
