Chili powder is the dried, pulverized fruit of one or more varieties of chili pepper, sometimes with the addition of other spices. The chilis are most commonly red chili peppers of the species Capsicum annuum. As a result of the various potential additives, the spiciness of any given chili powder is variable. Chili powder is sometimes known by the specific type of chili pepper used. Varieties of chili peppers used to make chili powder include Aleppo, ancho, cayenne, chipotle, chilI de árbol, jalapeño, New Mexico, pasilla, and piri piri chili peppers. Chili powder is used in many different cuisines, including American cuisine, particularly in Tex-Mex, Chinese, Indian, Korean, Mexican, Portuguese, and Thai. Chili powder blends are the primary flavor ingredient in chili con carne.
Chili Pepper Powder can be used to add a richness of flavor with complimentary heat, and can add a smoky, spicy flavor to a variety of dishes. Our Medium-Hot Chili Powder blend contains a traditional blend of spices combined with Pasilla chili powder, giving it a deep, rich flavor. Chili powder is often used a staple in Southwestern American and Mexican cuisine, and is also used in Indian and Asian fare, as well as Cajun and Creole cooking.
The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat of the cayenne and chili peppers, as reported in Scoville heat units (S.H.U. or H.U.), due to the capsaicin concentration. The substances that give the peppers their intensity when ingested are capsaicin and the related compounds known as capsaicinoids. The greater amount of these compounds there are in the chili, the hotter it is.
