Homemade Chili Seasoning Mix has become a staple in my pantry. If I want a meal that will please everyone, I put on a pot of chili. We eat it with honey cornbread, piled on top of baked potatoes or over hot dogs.
Over the past year or so, I have tried to cut out the majority of store bought seasoning packets, mixes and even cream soups by making my own. So far, it’s been a hit. I perfected my Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix and my Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix. And I’m proud to say that I have not purchased a can of cream of something soup in over a year.
So I decided to give homemade chili seasoning a whirl. After about 4 batches of chili and alot of tweaking, I created a recipe that the family loves. We like our chili a little sweet, full of flavor, but not too spicy. If you like yours spicier, then you can flip flop the measurements for cumin vs. chili powder.
I like to double this recipe 5 – 10 times to make a huge batch for the pantry. These are my favorite storage containers because they use space efficiently. Then I substitute three tablespoons for each packet of chili seasoning in a recipe.
You can also get creative and use this chili seasoning to jazz up other recipes. Try sprinkling it on vegetables before grilling or roasting. You could also add a dash to an omelette, meat marinade or even homemade potato soup.
