Fall is in the air… almost! I am so ready for fall, our weather just does not seem to be cooperating. In the fall, I make a lot of chili. Sometimes in the crock pot, sometimes on the stove top. Sometimes I make more of a soup, and sometimes I combine a variety of ingredients to make a new concoction. Any which way you look at eat, we eat chili in one form or another quite a bit.
Just like my homemade taco seasoning, I have been making homemade chili seasoning for a while. I like to make a big batch at one time so I will have it ready to go when I am making chili. This makes it just as convenient as having packaged chili seasoning, but it is much more frugal. I use a container just like this to store my chili seasoning in. I actually bought two at the same time so I could have one for my taco seasoning, too. I love the size of these containers because I can make a lot of homemade chili seasoning at once.
This homemade chili seasoning is flavorful, but it is not very spicy. Feel free to add more cayenne pepper if you like your chili more on the spicy end! This is a large batch of chili seasoning. I like having it ready when I am making dinner, so I like to make a lot ahead of time. These containers hold 12 ounces, so this recipe fits inside perfectly. Just two tablespoons per batch of chili and you have amazing chili. 🙂
What you need:
3/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup ground cumin
1/4 cup salt
2 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
