What It Is
Chili powder is made from chili peppers that have been dried and ground into a powder. It’s a great way to add a little heat to your dishes without having to take the full force of the hot pepper.
The Health Benefits
You probably won’t get all the vitamins and minerals of fresh chili peppers, but the spices still have a number of health benefits to offer. For example, the capsaicin that gives peppers their heat is a powerful anti-inflammatory and may even have some anti-cancer effects (source).
