I have always used the McCormick chili seasoning packets to make my chili. It's delicious and fairly inexpensive, but I don't like the sodium levels in those packs, so I'm trying my hand at my own chili seasoning.
I will use 2 tablespoons of the seasoning with one pound ground meat, 1 can fat-free refried beans, one can tomato sauce, one can diced tomatoes, and one can of water. We serve our chili over rice, with Fritos, and extra-sharp cheddar cheese. YUMMO!!
Ingredients: 4 teaspoons chili powder 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon garlic powder 2 teaspoons white sugar 2 teaspoons cumin 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes 2 teaspoons salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Directions: Mix all of this together well. Store in a ziploc bag. Use 2 tablespoons per pound of meat. Add more or less to taste.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
