One of my family’s favorite meals is Chili. When I want to throw a big batch into the crock pot, I use this recipe, but sometimes our chili is a last minute “I-have-everything-on-hand-and-it’s-already-5pm” meal, so we also have a Quick Chili recipe. Our Quick Chili recipe (coming on a later post) calls for Chili Seasoning, but I never cared much for the packets, so I make a big batch of my own to keep on hand. I store the seasoning in a glass jar, and use only a couple of tablespoons at a time, so it lasts a while! It’s not gluten free, but the flour helps thicken up the chili, which makes for a really nice texture and gives it a wonderful flavor!
