homemade chili seasoning

Apparently one thing I have been craving this pregnancy is chili.

I can’t even count how many times Andrew has made his famous Man Chili for me these last few months, and I always have intentions of freezing some for later but it disappears to fast!

With all that chili that making, it was only a matter of time before we ran out of chili seasoning blend and had to make our own.

I am super impressed with how this recipe turned out and I’m going to be making a nice big batch next time I get to a store with bulk spices!

The recipe below will make enough for 2 batches of Andrew’s Man Chili… ¬†(We make large batches of chili so we can freeze some… ¬†this would be enough for probably 4 batches of regular chili!).

I will probably at least double this next time I make it, if not more, since this seasoning will also work great for tacos and more!

Homemade Chili Seasoning Recipe
adapted from My Baking Addiction

4 tablespoons mild chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder (use less if you don’t like much spice!)

Measure everything into a bowl, whisk well to combine and then transfer to a small jar or spice container for storage.

    How much is comparable to a packet?

      Hmmm… I would guess maybe 1/4 cup or so?

      I would say it is similar to 4 packets that you buy in the store. The chili recipe that I use the most calls for two packets and I made a half batch which worked great.

    This was really good! I made a half batch omitting the paprika, red pepper flakes, and chipotle powder. This was enough for one large pot of chili for me to test it out before I made a lot. Only thing I plan to change is less black pepper next time. Thanks for sharing!
