How to make your own: Chili Seasoning

Fall is well on it’s way and I’m thinking of one of my favorite ways to keep warm: Chili!  This is a great dish to prepare for a crowd or to freeze for easy pull out meals (which is what I did!  Baby #3 will be arriving soon!).  A few months ago, I put up a recipe for Taco Seasoning, today I’m adding chili seasoning to the blog!  They have a lot of the same ingredients and it is just as easy plus a great money saver!  Check it out!

What You Need:

2 Tbs. onion soup mix (or minced dried onion)

1 Tbs. flour

1 1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. garlic salt

1 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (if making for kids, you might cut back)

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (if making for kids, you might cut back)

1/2 tsp. sugar

Use as much or as little as you need per recipe, but 3 T. = approximately 1 packet of Chili Seasoning.  Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag and do not expose to moisture.  I love eating chili a few ways: just as shown below, but smothered in cheese and crackers, on a salad with tortilla chips and sour cream or as I learned in Joplin, on top of spaghetti noodles and called Spaghetti Red!

    Thanks for posting. I’ve had to recreate chili seasoning before, but I left out the garlic powder by accident, and it wasn’t quite the same. Pinning!

    I always loved the smell of chili but can’t stand the texture/taste of beans. With this seasoning, I could always just use it on the meat and leave out the beans!! YAY!! Thanks!

      Great idea! You could use lots of yummy veggies or quinoa in place of the beans too.

  7. Love this! I make my own taco seasoning all the time and its the best! I also make homemade chili, but the recipe is VERY bland, so I always end up adding random seasonings until it tastes good! I can’t wait to give this recipe a try! Off to pin it! 😀
