Chili Powder, Light
It is the lightest in color of the three different chili powders that we carry, but far from the lightest in flavor. This bright red chili powder is a blend of chili peppers, cumin, garlic, and spices; it is perfect for making enchiladas.
Chili Powder, Medium
It is slightly darker in color than our light Chili Powder and has a slightly more intense chili pepper flavor. Extremely mild in heat, Medium Chili Powder is our most popular chili powder.
Chili Powder, Dark
This dark reddish brown Chili Powder is a powerful blend of ground ancho chile, cumin, oregano, garlic, and spices. Mild in heat, this Chili Powder packs a huge punch of flavor and color.
