How to Make Homemade Chili Seasoning

Homemade chili seasoning is not only a lifesaver when you are in a pinch, it’s also far cheaper to make your own homemade chili seasoning that buy it in the packages! Not to mention you also skip the ” fillers” that are in the packaged chili seasonings as well. Whipping up a batch of homemade chili seasoning means that you get to add your own herbs and spices, without a filler in sight!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional

Instructions

1. Whisk together all of the ingredients.
2. Place in an airtight container and store in the cupboard.

How to use this seasoning in a chili recipe

This recipe comes in handy whenever I am make a recipe that needs chili seasoning, like my Cheesy Chili Mac Skillet or even my kitchen sink chili recipe and there isn’t a packet to be found. I try to keep a batch of this in my cupboard at all times, simply mix it and store in an airtight container.

If you are looking to replace a mix in a recipe, use 2-3 tbsp of this homemade chili seasoning instead, it’s quite potent ( that’s because it’s all spices without fillers, unlike the store bought packets).

Hope that you guys find this a lifesaver!

Love,

Karlynn

    This was really simple and good. I’ve used it in a chili mac and goulash recipe and it worked really well. Thanks for sharing.5 stars

    I would be sure to specify ancho chili powder, not a pre mix and Mexican oregano not Italian oregano.
