I make a lot of Chili, and I mean a LOT of Chili during the colder months. It’s 39 degrees here to day in Bavaria, so I’m making the season’s first batch of my “Almost Famous” Chili . It’s been raining, drizzling, foggy and just plain old yucky for 3 days, so this is going to really hit the spot . But, finding Chili Powder in Bavaria is not an easy task! I started making my own last year and boy, is it ever good! It certainly couldn’t be easier and my recipe uses herbs and spices I bet you already have on hand.
The best part of mixing up a batch of your own is you can tailor it to your taste. I happen to like Cumin, so I use a bit more. Cayenne? Not so much. In fact I use just enough Cayenne to give it some “taste,” but you won’t burn your lips with my Chili Powder! If you enjoy some heat, add an extra 1/2 Tsp of that red stuff.
