There's a big difference between plain dried red chiles sold in

a powdered form ("chili powder") and a real chili powder spice mix

that's ready for Mexican dishes. Make sure you're getting the mix

by checking for ingredients such as oregano, cumin, garlic, salt,

and, of course, red chiles. Or make your own and try a blend of red

peppers and additions like coriander, paprika, or cloves. Use it

for any kind of appetizer or main dish that you want to have a

smoky, warm flavor - and don't forget it for your chili! Chili

powder is mild and red chili powder is dynomite!
