Chili Seasoning Mix

chili

I love chili with or without meat. It’s comfort food on a cold winter’s day. But I so didn’t want to use packaged mixes anymore. So when I finally nailed this recipe, I was ecstatic. It brings together all those yummy heart warming Southwest flavors without any of that added other stuff. Having it on hand I’m able to transform just about anything. It does come with a kick though, so adjust the amount of dry chili flakes according to heat tolerance. I’ve also included a chili powder blend to make it a complete package.
