You *buy* commercial chili powder???  You aren't a Texian -- you're 
hardly even an American.  Commercial chili powder is an abomination.  
What's the point of growing all those chiles if you are going to buy 
<argh!> chili powder?

Real chili is made using home pulverized chiles, not that stuff they 
sell at the store.

It's too late for an Alamo treatment.
