Organic Chili Pepper Powder
Country of Origin:
Our organic chili pepper powder is contrary to popular belief a spice mix rather than a single spice. This gives the powder a more complete taste and less heat. If you rather have the full strength, we have our Organic Ground Cayenne Peppers that packs quite a punch (Up to 50,000 SHU).
Chili powder gets its name for "chili con carne", a spicy meat stew that originated in either Mexico or southern Texas as it's often used to season it. The spice blend differs from one source to another, but it usually includes some mix of ground dried chiles, cayenne pepper, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, and onion powder.
Use chili powder anywhere you want to add a bit of a kick. It's commonly used in Latin American dishes like tacos or enchiladas. It also makes an excellent addition to chilis, stews, soups, meats, and beans.
Although it's a spice blend in itself, chili powder can also be used as an ingredient in other spice and seasoning blends, such as fajita seasoning or homemade taco seasoning. It's a great way to add flavor to snacks like roasted chickpeas or tortillas chips. Try mixing it with salt and adding it to the rim of your next margarita for some added heat.
This powder ranges from 1,000 to 3,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).
