Homemade Chili Powder Recipe - Buttered Side Up

Homemade Chili Powder Recipe




Chili Powder | Buttered Side Up
As I've mentioned before, I first started getting interested in health when I was a teen. I was passionate about recreating "junk food" with healthy ingredients. My sister and I would fry our own potato chips in coconut oil. I would bake desserts, but substitute whole wheat flour and natural sweeteners.

Making my own spice mixes was a pretty obvious choice. If you read the label on the ones found at the supermarket, they often contain MSG or mystery "spices" - which could be MSG in disguise.

It's so easy to whip up a batch of homemade spices. And they will most likely be fresher than the premade variety.

Also, I try to source ingredient spices. I'm slowly converting my pantry...

This recipe is for a mild chili powder. It may still be too spicy if you are very sensitive to heat; you can simply decrease or leave out the cayenne pepper. If your prefer a spicier chili powder, increase the amount of cayenne pepper.

  2. Whaaaaaat? I'm fairly health conscious too, but I didn't MSG was likely sitting in my spice blends. This is disheartening, but I guess I'll just start making my own. I didn't even know chili powder had so many ingredients! Thank you!

    1. Right? It's so sad that companies put it in spices, and even more sad that they try to hide it.
