McCormick Chili PowderIf you’ve ever attended a neighborhood chili cook-off, then you know there are as many chili recipes as there are cooks. But there’s also an essential starting point—an earthy, complex, well-balanced flavor to set the stage for your own special additions. You might be surprised to know that chili powder is actually a blend of herbs and spices. Ours begins with whole, ripe chili peppers, toasted and mixed with ingredients including cumin, oregano, garlic and salt. Chili is just one of its many uses. Add it to rubs for pork ribs and chicken wings. Stir it into ground beef with onions and garlic as a base for nachos, tacos or a fantastic burger. Then get creative. Shake in extra oregano, a touch of cumin or additional garlic powder. Use it to make whatever dish you love even better!
Want to get your next pot of chili off to a super-delicious start? Begin with McCormick Chili Powder: a complex blend of ripe peppers, herbs and spices. It’ll set the stage for your own take on any Mexican, Tex-Mex or Southwestern dish.

McCormick Chili PowderPotency
The potency of the new McCormick Chili Powder, especially when compared to the older Chili Powder is going to be very different. As spices and herbs age, their quality and flavor will slowly diminish.
McCormick Chili PowderShelf Life
It does not spoil, but flavor and quality will diminish with time. The shelf life of properly stored spices and herbs is approximately 3-4 years for whole spices and seeds, 2-3 years for ground spices, 1-3 years for leafy herbs, and 1-2 years for seasoning blends.
