Chili Seasoning Mix & Crockpot Chili

By Sharon Ng

This is a great alternative to store bought chili seasoning because it cuts out some of the additives and fillers that are contained in store bought. Also, this seasoning mix contains no gluten (though you should always double check your ingredients, just in case some gluten is snuck in).

I have included a crockpot chili recipe that goes with the chili seasoning, however, you can use the seasoning as you would store bought.

Store this Chili Seasoning in a glass airtight container. Do not store it in a plastic bag—I have had spices leach out of the plastic (and stain my shelves).


Chili Seasoning

For a great gift, mix up the seasoning mix, store in a nice jar (perhaps a bail top jar), and attach a tag with the chili recipe. It is a different idea, and since its gluten free, many of my friends can have it. During the holidays it seems sweet stuff is in abundance, and this is just a little something different that non sweet eaters, men, and those with special dietary restrictions can use! I think it's a great idea because around the holidays I get sugar overload, this is a nice change.

This is a great blend that contains no msg, gluten or additives.

Yield: approx 4 Tablespoons

4 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon dried basil
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

Mix all ingredients well in an air tight, glass container.
