REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Been playing around with making my own spices lately. Some are hits, some are miss. This was a hit. It's not like commecial chili powder blends but I think I actually prefer it. Has more depth to it than just heat like some do. Looking forward to trying more spice recipes from this site. If anyone has any "must try" recommendations please let me know!
