Homemade Chili Seasoning

For a long time, I've relied on the convenience of packaged seasonings and marinades. While there are still a few I like to use, I've discovered the frugality of making my own! Plus, have you ever read what is in those packages?! To save even more money, buy your spices and dried herbs in bulk. Personally, here in Southern California, I love shopping at Winco Foods. They have amazing prices and offer organic options.  I typically will buy large amounts of salt, pepper, oregano, paprika, cumin and others so that I have plenty to make several different seasonings. Growing your own herbs and drying them is also a great option.

With Fall just around the corner, I'm getting all my favorite seasonings ready to go! The one I make the most of is my homemade chili seasoning. This has been a game changer in our house! My husband  L O V E S  chili so you can only imagine how often I'm making it in the colder months. I finally found the perfect portions of each herb and spice to create the most delicious chili ever! It is versatile while also sticking true to the traditional flavor of homemade chili. 

12 tbsp Chili Powder

6 tbsp Ground Cumin

1 tbsp Garlic Powder

4 tbsp Salt
(I prefer Pink Himalayan)

1 tbsp Cayenne

1 tbsp Ground Black Pepper

2 tbsp Dried Oregano

2 tbsp Onion Powder

Mix all of the ingredients together in mixing bowl. 

Store in an airtight jar or container for up to three years!

For smaller portions of recipe, you can divide in half or smaller and it will have the same outcome.
