Chili Seasoning Mix

I developed this recipe to give as a Christmas present to family and friends. I package it in fun cups from garage sales and wrap them in bright cellophane bags, along with an easy chili recipe. Now I'm filling requests all year! —Caroline Munoz, Austin, Minnesota

    Thanks so much for the chili recipe amber. My son loved it. I made it for a potluck and he wanted us to get there late so we would still have some to bring back home. LOL

    I tried this recipe and it was great! I used 1 lb. ground beef, 1 can kidney beans, 1 can pinto beans, 1 quart tomato juice, 1 pint diced tomatoes, and 1/4 c. seasoning. Hope this helps.
