This is a sweet mild chili taste which makes a great rub for pork tenderloin, ribs, or chicken. Add some ground cumin, oregano, salt, black pepper, and brown sugar for a great sweet-spicy taste. This pound gives enough for 5 or 6 meals.


Delicious, sweetly smokey, mild flavored chili powder. If you love the taste of great chili powder but not the heartburn that comes with it this is the chili powder for you. Perfect for chili recipes as well as making a tasty and mild taco seasoning.


Good stuff! Super fresh and tasty! I have bought several RawSpiceBar spices now and I'm very pleased with all of them. Sure beats the heck out of any grocery store spices anywhere, taste not to mention savings.


This is some very tasty stuff. I go through chili powder like crazy, on almost every meal. This is a LOT cheaper, and better tasting, than those green topped bottles in the grocery store.


After a while of using commerical chilli powder, it'time to step it up a notch, and start making your own chilli powder. Ancho is the foundation of all good chili powders, and this has a good taste. Should be added to everything you eat. If you don't have time to make one, get it from rawspicebar.
