Spice of the Month: Chipotle Chili Powder by Dana Angelo White in Healthy Recipes, February 8, 2013
“Chili powder” is actually made from a blend of spices. Various types of dried chilies are mixed with other flavors like garlic, cumin and oregano.
Chipotle peppers are red jalapenos that have been smoked so they’re not only spicy, they have a deep, rich and smoky flavor. Grind dried chipotles into a fine powder and you have a butt-kicking spice that will add big flavor with the smallest of sprinkles — that’s chipotle powder.
