I made this basic chili a few weeks ago and in I used my homemade chili seasoning blend. I wanted to post the blend by itself to highlight the fact that it can be used for so much more than just chili!
My favorite non-chili use for chili seasoning is roasting vegetables. Just toss some veggies (potatoes, broccoli, whatever) in some olive oil and chili seasoning, then roast in a 400 degree oven until they’re tender. SO GOOD. You can also sprinkle this seasoning into your mac n’ cheese, or use it to coat chicken or fish before grilling. I mean, what can’t you do with chili seasoning?!
Homemade Chili Seasoning
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ tsp (approximately) freshly ground pepper
- Add all of the ingredients to a bowl and stir to combine. Store in an air-tight container, away from heat and moisture for up to six months.
The chili powder (first ingredient) is a mild blend of chiles and other spices. Click here for an example.
Not much of a step by step needed with this one, huh?
