Homemade Chili Seasoning Mix

I love to make great big pots of chili during cold weather.  The only problem is that I didn't have a good chili mix recipe, so I had to buy my chili mix.  My favorite is the Cincinnati Chili Mix. The only problem with this is that it is getting quite pricey--close to $2 per pkg. and it takes 2 for my pot of chili. This brought me to research and try to find a chili mix recipe to make up into baggies in advance.  This is what I have come up with:

Lisa's Chili Seasoning Mix

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 5 teaspoons chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion

  • 1 tablespoon dried, minced garlic

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar or splenda

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

  • Mix all together into a bowl and then put into baggies!  Double or triple to make more to store in the pantry.
    You can tweak this recipe according to your taste--we do not like it too spicy hot but you can add red pepper flakes to add heat!
    Hope you enjoy!


    1. That sounds really good.


    2. Thanks Cheryl! How did your soap turn out! I sold most of mine during December--I see several more batches in my future!
