Commercial chili powder can be used for making sauces for tacos or enchiladas, salsas and dishes like chili con carne. When using store-bought powder look at the labels to see what spices are included. You can also make your own chili powder. Here is a perfect version.
6 Ounces Dried Chiles (Mild, Hot or a Combination)
2 Tablespoons Ground Cumin
2 Teaspoons Ground Paprika
4 Teaspoons Salt
2 Teaspoons Garlic Salt
2 Teaspoons Oregano
2 Teaspoons Onion Salt
2 Teaspoons Fresh Dried Cilantro
Cut off the stems of the dried chiles with a knife. Blend all of the ingredients with the chiles in a food processor or a blender until powdery. Makes 2/3 cup of zesty chili powder. Store in an air-tight glass jar.
