Chili Powder (This makes extra)

Main Ingredients


Chili Powder

  1. If it makes you feel better go ahead and dry-roast your whole spices first in a pan. Personally I think it has no value enhancing the flavour, if anything you risk burning and you will modify the original attributes. I will admit when the spice hits the pan with some heat you can smell it more intensely…maybe that’s the only value.
  2. Depending how hot you like it. Remove all the seeds, keep all of them or some. I use about 1/3 of seeds and toss into the pot.
  3. Chop the peppers and put them into a grinder and bring to a dust.
  4. Add all other spice items and mix. Put in a tightly sealed container or jar for up to six months.


  1. On a medium-high pan. Add oil, then Onion, Celery, Red Pepper, Carrot and Garlic. Sauté till onions start to turn translucent.
  2. Add in Chili powder and coat all the vegetables for about a minute then remove from heat.
  3. Add all the other ingredients into your pot and simmer. Don’t boil your chili….what are you British? lol
  4. At some point you’re going to need to start adding salt till you’re happy with the results.
  5. I like to use a blitzer in the chili just a little to get the visual look that I like. Or about 1/4 of your batch just put in a blender then return back to the pot is just as effective.
  6. Add the Tequila if you so dare!
