Commercially produced chili powder was first made available around 1894. Two men from Texas are credited with it's creation, D.C. Pendery and William Gebhardt. It was created mainly for making chili con carne, a very popular Tex-Mex dish. Gebhardt later went on to make the first mass-produced canned chili con carne.
