Karl’s Turkey Chili Powder

Jan is on a soft food diet—nothing where she needs to bite something off—and she decided that chili with small bits  of vegetables and meat would fit the bill. Although I would prefer beef or pork chili, she has asked for ground turkey. Turkey is a rather bland meat so I decided to spice it up with some chili powder.

½ Tbs. Chile California

½ Tbs. Chile Nuevo Mexico

½ Tbs. Hungarian Paprika

½ Tbs. Chile Pasilla

1 tsp. cumin seeds, toasted and ground

1 tsp. coriander seeds, toasted and ground

1 tsp. Mexican oregano

½ tsp. Kosher salt

¼ tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. garlic powder

¼ tsp. onion powder

¼ tsp. black pepper, cracked


1. If you are not using pre-ground cumin and coriander, toast the seeds in a dry pan and grind them in a spice grinder.

Tip: I use a dedicated coffee grinder.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the spice grinder and pulse to mix thoroughly.
