Adds a nice smokey heat to a chili or taco sauce. A little goes a long way: I used a half teaspoon to spice up my 2 Alarm Chili recipe and it was perfect. My big gripe with my standard chili powder is its lack of panache! This is the best chipotle I have come across to date. It goes well on meats: but use sparingly until you develop a feel for this robust chipotle, it can easily overwhelm the dish. It also makes the dish if use properly. The large bag will last some time in my household. I'm a Skordo fan, as its hard to find quality spices in my area, very pleased.
