Smokey chili spice mix


I usually make a big batch of this to do multiple pots of chili without having to remix or measure any spices. Toss everything into a storage container, shake and mix up well, and the seasoning for my chili is ready when I am. This also makes it easy for Jeff to whip up a batch of chili that tastes like mine.

4 tbsp chili powder

2 tbsp smoked paprika

3 tbsp cumin or coriander

1 tbsp cayenne powder

2 tbsp ground ancho chili powder

2 tbsp black pepper

4 tbsp salt

Notes- all spices are ground, and I like to toast my spices in oil for a few minutes in the pot after the onions have softened and before adding any liquids, tomatoes or beans. Then I use the tomatoes to deglaze the pot.
