Preparing a pot of chili has become such a popular meal. More and more people are creating recipes with their own secret spice recipes. In the southern states and many other areas nationwide there are chili cook-offs. At these events it’s likely that prizes are awarded to the one who has designed the best chili and seasoning mix out of all the cooks who signed up for these face-offs. Making a chili seasoning mix is very simple to do and since all the ingredients are dry they will keep well in a air-tight container up to 1 year without starting to lose their potency. Having a container of chili seasoning mix already in the pantry or spice cabinet will save time and be available to include in so many other dishes to really spice things up.
