chili seasoning

I am looking to make my own seasoning for chili that I will make with ground beef and diced tomatoes. No beans. We used seasoning packets previously but Dh can't have Modified food starch...

so I have to make it from scratch which actually sounds fun.

Re: chili seasoning

I recently got a taco seasoning recipe from allrecipes. It got hundreds of great reviews. I'm sure you could get one for chili seasoning. Normally what I put in my chili is 4T chili powder, 1t cumin and 1t oregano. That is for a large pan. You could cut it in half.

Re: chili seasoning

I use a recipe from allrecipes as well. I can't remember which one it is. I do remember it had the highest feedback or close to. Just hit most popular or something like that when you get the list. I looked under taco seasoning and use it for chilli. It was submitted by Bill Echols I think. I like that I can adjust it to fit our dietary needs and preferences. My husband can't have MSG because of allergies. Most if not all packages of taco seasonings have it.

Re: chili seasoning

I just use chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt to taste. The amounts vary depending on the size of the batch of chili but roughly 2X as much cumin as chili powder (my family prefers hearty rather than hot chili) and about the same amount of oregano as chili powder then salt to taste.

taco seasoning is the same combo of chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt. A bit of onion powder too if I didn't cook onion in with the meat to begin with. Also add in an 8oz can of tomato sauce (less for 1 lb, more if making more than 2 lb).
