One thing that I just love to do is make my own mixes, including this homemade chili seasoning mix. My favorite, though, is probably my taco seasoning or my copycat steak seasoning or my super secret sweet spice blend. I refuse to give the recipe to with anyone. Many friends have tried to get the recipe out of me, but it’s one of my super guarded secret recipes. Maybe someday I will bless them with it…until then, they are stuck with just getting jars of it at Christmas.
Do you have a secret family recipe that you don’t share with anyone?
I have a good friend that things I’m crazy for keeping some recipes a secret, but I feel like having a few recipes that are special to my family is totally worth it. My Granny gave me a cookbook of all her best recipes, most are just regular recipes that she made, but there is a section called the X-Files. These recipes are top secret and not to be shared with anyone. I’ve had friends ask for recipes that are in that part of the book, but I hold strong and don’t share. My Granny is so proud.
Luckily for you, this chili seasoning is not a secret and it makes the most scrumptious chili. The best part is that you can use regular white flour or a gluten free flour blend to make a gluten free chili! Both ways work great and it really is better that you control the salt and other ingredients. Being able to control exactly what goes into my meals is what keeps me doing all this. Have you ever read the back of a prepackaged seasoning mix? There are tons of extra ingredients that you don’t need and that you won’t miss!
