One of the easiest ways to bring a dish to life is adding a dash or two of chili powder. This tasty blend of spices is used extensively for the preparation of curry dishes. Like many blends of spices, chili powder can be used as a rub for steak, fish and chicken before broiling, baking, or grilling.
Since chili powder is at its best when allowed to simmer and mingle with the other ingredients within the recipe, using a slow cooker to prepare the chili is an ideal method. The end result is a flavorful chili that has a consistently pleasing taste from the first bowl to the last.
Chili powder is a powder consisting purely or mainly of powdered hot chili pepper.
