A New Spice

... has been added to my cabinet;  ground chipolte peppers.  If you like chili powder, try to find some made from smoked chipolte peppers.  It adds another dimension to food without all of the added chemicals typically found in the canned peppers.  Our local health food store carries it in their organic bulk spice section.  It makes taco night more festive by adding it to the cooked meat and the refried beans.  It would be a good addition to homemade chili.  Give it a try if you enjoy spice.

I have to agree with Rebecca. I think I

We love chipolte peppers and finding them ground was like finding heaven for hubby. It can be added to just about anything that more spice is desired for. Unfortunately, only one store carries its (and its not my regular store), so I buy a big bag each time and store it in the freezer.
