Store bought chili powder lacks authentic flavor. We like to make our own homemade chili powder which adds a tremendous boost to Chili, Tex-Mex or Mexican recipes.

Ingredients

2 ounces ancho chilies
dried, seeds and stems removed
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
to taste
2 teaspoons cumin
ground
2 teaspoons oregano
dried
2 teaspoons cocoa powder

Directions

Dried ancho chili pods can be found in many markets in the Mexican or ethnic food section of many supermarkets, including Walmart.

Remove stems and seeds and tear into one inch pieces.

Add chili pieces to a skillet over medium heat and pan roast for 4 or 5 minutes or until fragrant. Stir occasionally to avoid scorching.

Add the ancho chili pieces, red pepper flakes, cumin, oregano and cocoa powder into a food processor. Process until a fine chili powder forms with no large pieces remaining.

Store in a tightly sealed container until ready to use.

Makes just over ⅓ of a cup of authentic homemade chili powder.
