Chile, chili, and chilli are ambiguous terms that refer to similar but distinct ingredients. To avoid confusion, this cookbook—like several other sources[1][2][3]—uses "chile" with an "e" to refer to the pure chile pepper (either fresh or processed), and "chili" with an "i" to refer to the stew and its associates such as the spice blend chili powder. However, do know that the spellings can be ambiguous in other sources, and make sure to use the correct ingredient called for in a given recipe.
