How to Make Homemade Chili Seasoning

Chili seasoning is what makes chili chili: It’s where chili gets its distinctive flavor from. You can buy premade chili seasoning at the store, but the best chili is made with homemade chili seasoning. Making your own chili seasoning lets you customize the spice blend to suite your palate, and you probably already have most of what you need in your pantry.

Here’s a good homemade chili seasoning recipe to get you started:

  • 2 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. coriander
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

Whisk everything together in a small bowl, then pour it into a jar or zip-top storage bag and tuck it away in your cupboard if you’re not making chili right away.
