Chef's Notes

To make chili seasoning mix: Stir together 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika, 1/4 teaspoon ghost pepper powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Use as directed in recipe; Quinoa typically is found in the rice and pasta section of supermarkets. If is not pre-washed, rinse well before cooking to remove the natural bitter coating; Ghost pepper powder is typically found online or in a local specialty spice store.

  2. The was a pretty good recipe but had way too little chili powder for the seasoning mix. Changed that to 1/2 cup doubled all the other spices and then it was terrific.
