KiKi's Cupboard New Mexico Chili Powder is a blend of various dried and ground New Mexico Chilis. This is a medium heat level red chili and appropriate for the nearly endless variety of recipes calling for chili powder--everything from enchilada sauce, to taco seasoning, to spicy dry rubs, homemade barbecue sauces, and beyond.
Originating from the Pueblo and Hispano communities throughout the New Mexico territory, the modern day New Mexico Chilis are essentially a group of elongated chili pepper varieties that were bred by horticulturists at New Mexico State University. These are common varieties such as Sandia, Big Jim, Rio Grande, and many others. Anaheim is another variety originally brought from New Mexico to be grown commercially in the Anaheim area and thus earned the common name there.
