Green jalapeno powder is a popular choice for adding heat to chili - especially chili verde. The benefit to using ground jalapeno powder is that the heat level stays consistent unlike fresh peppers that can have varying heat levels from batch to batch or pepper to pepper. This ground chili powder has a bright green color along with a very pungent aroma and searing heat. It's great in salsa, hot sauces and green enchilada sauce as well. Use sparingly.
