Our medium hot, salt free chili powder is bursting with flavour and freshness. Freshly ground and made with just spices and dried chiles, our chili powder will make any taco party or bowl of chili a superstar. Chili powder is a traditional seasoning used in a variety of Latin American dishes. A dash of it adds a powerful punch and a dose of spiciness to the dish.
Medium to hot chili powders are most commonly used in comforting, hearty chili or baked beans, and is a perfect addition to tomato based products, barbeque sauces, rubs, dips, dressings, rice, hamburgers, meatloaf, grilled or roasted meats, fish, and vegetables. Used in Mexican dishes including tacos, enchiladas, carnitas, tamales, salsa, guacamole dip, beans, and more. You can even sprinkle chili powder over mixed nuts and popcorn, to give them just a little kick.
How is the heat determined for Cayenne & Chili Peppers? 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.
Our Organic Chili Powder can be shelf stored for up to 24 months in an airtight container, away from direct heat, sunlight and moisture. It will last longer than other ground spices due to the level of capsaicinoids which help to preserve the blend.
