Recipe: Home Made Chili Powder

Picture this: A chilly winter afternoon, I decided to make a batch of turkey chili, with some of our delicious pasture raised turkey that we ground and froze. I get half the ingredients into the dutch oven, grab the container of chili powder, and it’s empty. SERIOUSLY? You can’t have chili without chili powder!!! What was I supposed to do? I was really looking forward to this chili. So to Google I went to see if I could find a substitute for chili powder. Lo and behold, I found several great recipes for home made chili powder. I combined them together, and made some tweaks, and came up with this deliciousness. It will keep for a long time if you put it in an air tight jar.

Chili powder ingredients

Ingredients
-1/4 cup paprika (regular, not smoked)
-1 Tbsp garlic powder
-1 Tbsp onion powder
-1/2 Tbsp oregano
-1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
-1 tsp cayenne pepper
-optional: 1/2 tsp Old Hickory Smoked Salt from Spice Islands (See note at bottom of recipe)

Combine all ingredients in a container that can be sealed. We put ours in a canning jar. Put lid on and shake to combine. Use like you would store-bought chili powder. Will keep for up to a year.

Note regarding Old Hickory Smoked Salt: This isn’t just your regular smoked salt. It contains cocoa, which adds an extra level of flavor. It can be omitted entirely, or replaced with a dash of smoked salt and a good sized pinch of cocoa.
