Make your own Chili Seasoning

I found this recipe on Bake Your Day.  I does have a little bit of salt in it which you could leave out.  I leave the salt in and then be careful about what I add.  So if I am making tacos I use 2 tablespoons of chili powder to my ground meat. (half turkey, half beef)  Then add my fresh veggies and beans and if I am being really good wrap it in a lettuce leaf instead of the tortilla. Served with homemade salsa.  Think of it as a cross between a taco and taco salad.

Chili Seasoning Mix










A quick and simple recipe for homemade chili and taco seasoning.


Chili Seasoning Mix Ingredients:
4 Tbs. chili powder
2 Tbs. flour
2 Tbs. ground cumin
1 Tbs. garlic powder
1 Tbs. onion powder
1 Tbs. granulated sugar
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried parsley


In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Store the seasoning mix in an air-tight container for up to one year.

For use in chili, use about 2 1/2 tablespoons of the above mixture in a recipe that calls for one packet of chili seasoning; adjust to your taste.

To turn this into taco seasoning, omit the sugar in the recipe above. When making tacos using one pound of ground beef, start with 2 tablespoons plus 1 cup of water of the seasoning mix, bring to a simmer and allow sauce to thicken. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Modify the mixture into blackening seasoning by leaving out the chili powder and crushed red pepper flakes; add in 1 Tbs. granulated sugar and 1 tsp. ground thyme.
