As a chillihead with countless types of chilli powders at their disposal, I felt that it would be a great idea to utilize them in a new way rather than directly using them in cooking along with their delicious distinctive flavours and heat levels and shortly after the idea of chilli based seasoning came to mind as a perfect way to use them - and alas this recipe caught my eye on Google.
I begun yesterday by using fatalii powder and fatalii crushed flakes as a base (similar heat to a habanero but very unique flavour), omitted the flour, omitted the sugar too and reduced salt a bit, added smoked paprika and put in some extra garlic and sprinkled on black pepper to the point where I thought it had enough.
Wow, now this is great.
And goes nicely on many different things.
Seriously, everything blends so well and the chilli stands out nicely, depending on the type of chilli powder I may have to add more or less in the future.
Tomorrow I'll try this with ghost pepper powder and flakes or possibly 7-pod.
Now I don't think I've seen any chilli aficionados' in the reviews yet who have tried this with different/hotter powders + crushed pods, but if you are one, and want to kick this up a notch and put a twist on it, those are generally good adjustments - however if you add a milder powder like jalapeno you're better off adding in around 2.5/3 more TSP as it will certainly lose dominance in the seasoning if you don't add enough. ~ Will keep this updated as I try more combinations!
