Homemade Chili Seasoning

Making your own homemade chili seasoning could not be any easier. Plus, it uses ingredients you may already have in your pantry. 

Skip that pre-made package of chili seasoning for this easy homemade recipe using ingredients that are in your pantry already.

I'm not going to lie. I usually just use a package of chili seasoning every time I make a pot of chili. But I found myself without one smack dab in the middle of making a pot. What is a girl to do?

So I headed to my spice cabinet and made my own. Why did I not do this sooner? All the ingredients are spices that I keep on hand anyway so why was I buying a package of seasoning?
