Light chili powder is better for a milder flavor palate. Less chili pepper, less roasting, and more of the other savory spices gives this blend a broader range of applications. It is suitable for dishes served to children and people who cannot eat spicy food.
Chili powder blends are composed chiefly of chili peppers and blended with other spices including cumin, onion, garlic powder, and sometimes salt. The chilis are most commonly red chili peppers; "hot" varieties usually also include cayenne pepper. As a result of the varying recipes used, the spiciness of any given chili powder is variable.
