Chili Powder de la Casa

This is my chili powder recipe that we used in the 2015 Atenas Chili Cook-Off. Out of 22 teams, we won the Peoples Choice Award!

  • 2 Whole Chipotle Chili Peppers with stems removed, minced, and ground to a powder (Chipotle Chili is a smoked Jalapeño Chili Pepper used primarily in Mexican and TexMex cooking.)
  • 1 tablespoon crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 3 tablespoons fresh finely minced oregano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ground coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole allspice 
  • 4 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons smoked Spanish paprika powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground clove
  • ¼ teaspoon of smoked Carolina Reaper powder, or 1 tablespoon Chili de Árbol powder (Tree chili is a small Mexican Chili with a woody stem that is sometimes called Bird’s Beak chili.)

  1. Use a spice grinder to grind the chipotle, red pepper flakes, oregano, coriander seeds, and allspice into a fine powder
  2. Mix the freshly ground spices with the remaining ingredients until well blended. 
  3. Store in an airtight jar for up to 6 months, or in the freezer for up to a year.

Yield ~ 1¼ - 1½ cups
