Homemade Chili Seasoning Mix

     I love making my own spice blends such as taco seasoning or baking mix (like Bisquick) or even my Southern Dry Rub recipe because it's nice to have them on hand whenever I need it.  Sure you can go out and buy your own mix but mixes at the stores contain a bunch of additives and fillers.  Making your own mixes will give you a lot more flavor without a bunch of junk that is not needed that you can't even pronounce.

     This awesome homemade chili seasonng mix comes in super handy for making things like Homemade Chili, No-Bean Chili, and even Beefy Chili Noodles.  This seasoning mix is perfectly  balanced and has so much vibrant flavor.  The mix is also so easy to make that even your kids could make it.

     Most of the store bought mixes of chili have about 5 tablespoons of mix inside of them but many of that bulk is in fillers and anti-caking ingredients so when you make your own, you won't have to use as much.  I have found that you can use half as much and still provide more flavor easily.  I generally use 2-3 tablespoons of my homemade mix per pound of meat or vegetables.

      Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and stir well.  Once mixed up, pour into a small "jelly" canning jar.

     This recipe is super flexible.  If you like your chili spicier, add in more crushed red pepper flakes and cayenne.  If you like it milder, just don't put in any red pepper flakes or cayenne.

     As I mentioned before, use 2-3 tablespoons of this mix in any recipe that calls for an envelope of chili seasoning.  Or use about 2 tablespoons per pound of meat or vegetables.

    This mix can be stored in the sealed canning jar for up to a year but I use it so oftten that it barely lasts me a few months.

     Chili Seasoning also goes well in any Tex-Mex recipe you have to kick up the flavor.  Or try it in your next omelet!

  1. This sounds good. I was unaware of using brown sugar in a chili seasoning. I have made some of my own using the other ingredients.

    1. Yes, I have always used it. It helps bring out some of the flavor of spices better. It enhances them.
