Chili Powder

Olam’s chili powder is a proprietary blend of capscicums and spices, cooked to reach a caramelized look and flavor. The majority of our chili powder is comprised of paprika and chili peppers, both of which are grown in the Southwestern region of the United States — primarily in New Mexico, Texas and Arizona. 

The additional spices in the powder are sourced from locations around the globe, including the United States, Mexico, Indonesia, India and Vietnam.  All of which are combined in blenders that cook the product to a desired color and flavor. 

Some of our chili powder blends can roast for as long as three hours to reach a deeply rich, caramelized flavor. The longer the ingredient has to cook with the food the more color and flavor it imparts. 

Chili Powder


So, when can I use chili powder? Chili powder has many applications, including: 

  • As a base for chili con carne or Mexican posole
  • To flavor corn dishes such as cornbread or grilled corn
  • Used in a rub for grilled and smoked meats
  • To flavor Mexican cuisine such as pork and beans
  • As an addition to your favorite desserts such as cookies or ice cream, to bring add a layer of different flavors

Chili Powder

Chili powder was invented in Texas in the 19th century. However, spice historians have not come to a consensus on the identity of the first person who first mixed the blend of chili peppers, cumin, oregano, garlic and salt. 

Some people believe it was DeWitt Clinton Pendery, founder of Pendery’s World of Chiles & Spices, in 1870. Others, such as chili historian Joe Cooper, credit William Gebhardt, a German immigrant, with first blending spices into chili powder in New Braunfels, Texas in 1896.
