Use green chili powder just as you would red chili powders that are 100% chili pepper-based (cayenne powder, ancho powder, chipotle powder, etc…). The main difference is in the color (obviously) and flavor. The color is perfect for adding heat to salsa verde and other green sauces (as red powders can impact their color). Flavor-wise, green chili powders tend to not be as earthy and bold – think a more subtle flavor that’s impacted by the natural flavor profile of the pepper and not a smoking process (like chipotle powder).
Green chili powder works very well with meats that are more mild in flavor, like pork and chicken, and it’s also delicious sprinkled on fresh salads to provide a spice bump.
