Spice Mix for Chili

This spice mix comes from my mother's chili recipe, which is fantastic. It'll make a great gift for the hearty eaters you know, especially if you pair it with a loaf of bread. —Vivian Huizinga, Shallow Lake, Ontario

    This is a great blend for a chili mix! We have used this recipe a few times now & I plan on gifting it to family for their holiday food gift baskets!

    This combination of spices is perfect for a nice zesty bowl of soup. It is now my family's favorite soup.
