chili powder

chili powder
what is it?

When you see a spice jar labeled simply "chili powder," it's actually a mix of ground chiles with several spices like oregano, garlic powder, and cumin. Blending ground chiles with these spices gives chili powder a balanced flavor and a measure of convenience: it's easier to simply stir chili powder into a dish rather than open up six or seven spice jars.

how to store:

Store spices away from light and heat and track its age by labeling purchase dates. Change your stock about every six months for ground spices and every year for whole spices.
