chile vs. chili

Something I learned from reading Chile Pepper Magazine last night:

Even though these two words are often mistakenly used interchangeably (by myself included),

Chili powder with an "i" is a mixed blend of spices
Chile powder with an "e" is solely ground up chile peppers and nothing else.

So, get it rite. Dam it.

also "damn" not "dam".
Glad about the "i" vs "e".
