Chile powder and chili powder are two different things. Chile powder is made from ground dried chiles, with few or no additives. Chile powders are named after their pepper of origin. Chili powder contains other ingredients like oregano, paprika, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and/or salt, and is used most often in the dish we recognize as chili con carne.
