What is a substitute for chili powder??

A good substitute for chili powder is a dash of hot pepper sauce and a little bit of oregano and cumin. Some mistakenly think that cayenne pepper and chili powder can be interchanged, but cayenne pepper is much spicier than chili powder. If you want to make a chili powder blend, try mixing 1 tsp paprika, 2 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp oregano, and 2 tsp of garlic powder.
