I like to make my own spice blends.
It’s easy, and feels like a sense of accomplishment at the same time.
Who knows what preservatives are in the packets at the grocery store, so it’s also a peace of mind thing.
Just in time for Fall – a recipe for homemade chili seasoning:
Homemade Chili Seasoning
1/2c chili powder
T black pepper
3T paprika [if you can find bourbon-smoked, all the better]
2T garlic salt
T onion powder
t red pepper flakes [can do up to a Tablespoon of these, depending on how spicy you like things]
This makes enough for a few meals, plus a 1/2 pint Ball jar to store.
I call it chili seasoning, but it’s great in other things, like guacamole, and hummus as well.
You could also use it as a dry rub for white meats – chicken, pork, turkey.
