Chili powder, a simple and easy blend that will make all your savory dishes be something else. It only requires 6 ingredients and just 5 minutes!


  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp onion powder


  1. Combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  2. Use it in dishes like vegan chili, Buffalo cauliflower wings, or even vegan Sloppy Joes.  
  3. Store in a sealed container in a dark, cool place for up to 1 year.


  • Feel free to add or omit any spices or herbs you don’t like.
  • Some people also add salt to the mix.
  • Add more or less cayenne pepper depending on how spicy you like your chili powder.
  • I prefer to use regular or sweet paprika, as I think smoked paprika has a really strong flavor and hot paprika makes the mix too spicy for me, but that’s up to you.
  • You could only add garlic powder (in that case double the amount), but I like to add onion powder as well.
