    Ya know, Chefguy, if you were a little less anxious to promote your site, and a little more anxious to truly share, maybe you'd have gotten this right.

    What is the difference between chipotle and chili powder? I have chili powder and was wondering if it would change the flavor of the mousse. Looking forward to trying this recipe, I have been craving a good mousse.

    A chipotle (pronounced /tʃɨˈpoʊtleɪ/ chi-POHT-lay; Spanish: [tʃiˈpotle]), or chilpotle, is a smoke-dried jalapeño chili used primarily in Mexican and Mexican-inspired cuisine, such as Mexican-American and Tex-Mex.

    There are many varieties of jalapeños which vary in size and heat. In Mexico, the jalapeño is also known as the cuaresmeño and gordo. Until recently, chipotles were almost exclusively found in the markets of central and southern Mexico. As Mexican food became more popular abroad, especially in North and South America in the late 20th century and into the 21st century, jalapeño production and processing began to expand into Northern Mexico to serve the Southern United States, and eventually processing occurred in the United States and other places, such as China.
     

    There are two different piquant ("hot") spices commonly called Chili powder, chile powder or chilli powder (British English).[citation needed]

    One is a powder consisting purely or mainly of powdered hot chili peppers, usually (but by no means always) of the species Capsicum annuum, and the other is a powdered spice mix intended as the principal flavor ingredient in chili con carne.

    The former, which is sometimes also called cayenne pepper can be made from virtually any hot pepper including the eponymous cayenne, ancho, jalapeño, New Mexico, and pasilla chilis. Its piquance ("heat"/"spicyness") varies widely depending on which are used (and their proportions if several types are mixed).

    This type of chili powder is widely used in traditional Indian cuisine. In Indian_English chilli powder always means this one, not the spice mix.

    The chili powder spice mix contains hot chilis and often mild paprika chilis as well, and other ingredients which usually include cumin, oregano, garlic powder, and salt. [1][2] It may also include any or all of the following additional spices: black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, mace, nutmeg, and turmeric.[citation needed] Again the piquance and flavor will vary widely depending on the exact ingredients used and their proportions.

    The spice mix is especially popular in American cuisine as the primary flavor ingredient in chili con carne. The first commercial blends of chili powder in the U.S. were created in the 1890s by D.C. Pendery and William Gebhardt for precisely this dish.[3]
