Spice up your next batch of Chili with Homemade Chili Seasoning! Made with simple spices you already have at home, this flavorful spice blend can be used on so many things- taco meat, roasted potatoes, roasted cauliflower, fish, chicken, fish or on crispy tofu!
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon coriander
- 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
- 2 teaspoons Mexican oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle powder (or cayenne pepper)
- 1 tsp salt, more to taste
- 1 teaspoon sugar (or sugar substitue, optional, but tasty)
- 1/4– 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Store in a sealed jar. Or use all in one batch of chili (with 1 pound meat or meat substitue, 2 cans beans).
If adding whole dried chilies: Test for heat level (should say on package, or taste small piece). Place a whole chili in a high powered blender, or spice grinder (remove stems, and seeds if you like). Grind until fine. Add 1 tablespoon to this basic recipe. Use remainder as you would chili flakes- I like to keep in a little bowl by the stove.
Spice blend will keep 6-9 months in a sealed jar.
Add the entire batch of spices to one normal sized batch of chili (1-2 lbs meat + 1-2 cans beans).
