How To Use Chili Seasoning


Using your homemade chili seasoning blend is as simple as can be. Here are the steps to unleash its flavor in your chili:

  1. Prep Your Chili Ingredients: Before you begin cooking your chili, make sure you have all the necessary ingredients ready. This typically includes ground beef or your choice of protein, canned tomatoes, beans, onions, and any other favorite chili additions.
  2. Season to Taste: For a standard batch of chili, start with about 2-3 tablespoons of your homemade chili seasoning blend. You can adjust this amount based on your personal preference and the size of your batch. If you prefer your chili spicier, consider adding a pinch of crushed red pepper or additional cayenne pepper.
  3. Mix It In: Add the chili seasoning blend to your chili mixture while cooking. You can sprinkle it in when sautéing onions, or browning meat, or simply stir it into the pot once all your ingredients are combined.
  4. Taste and Adjust: The beauty of using a homemade blend is that you can customize the flavor. Taste your chili after it simmers for a while and add more seasoning if needed. This allows you to fine-tune the spice level and overall taste.
  5. Simmer and Serve: Let your chili simmer on low heat to allow all the flavors to meld together. Once it’s cooked to perfection, serve your delicious, homemade chili with your favorite toppings and sides.

Enjoy your homemade chili with a seasoning blend tailored to your liking – a delicious and personalized meal that beats the store-bought packets any day.
