|Yep! I got a little messy! :)|
4 T chili powder
1/2 - 1 t crushed red pepper
1 T dried, minced onion
1 T dried, minced garlic
2 T white sugar
2 T ground cumin
2 t dried parsley
4 t salt
1 t dried basil
1 T paprika
1/4 t ground black pepper
Grind ingredients together and store in an airtight container. I used my small Ninja chopper to combine my ingredients together. See the picture below. To use, add 3 T to equal one packet of chili seasoning mix.
I always make a double batch of chili.
To make it, I brown 2lbs ground chuck. Sometimes I chop a small onion and cook it with the meat. Then I drain the grease. To that, I add 2 cans of kidney beans. Do not drain the beans before adding. For this batch I used one can of white kidney beans in place of one of the cans of red beans for the fun of it. :) Also add 1 24oz can of crushed or petite diced tomatoes. Add 6 tablespoons of seasoning mix, and mix well. Simmer at least until beans and tomatoes are heated through. I let mine simmer for about an hour.
