Chili Mix in a Jar Recipe with Printable Gift Tag
By Jane Lake
This is a neat, inexpensive gift in a jar recipe and you may already have all the ingredients. We’ve included a free printable tag to attach instructions for making the chili.
Chili is one of those rib-warming homemade meals that goes great with a salad and fresh bread. This mix is easy to assemble and suitable for almost anyone.
This particular recipe is a medium spiced chili seasoning that will make six meals. If you like mild chili, cut the chili powder down; if you like spicy, increase it or add crushed hot pepper flakes to taste.
- 1¼ cups flour
- ½ cup dried onion (flakes or minced)
- 2/3 cup chili powder
- 3 tbsp beef bouillon powder or salt
- 1½ tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp pepper
- 2 tsp sugar
Mix all ingredients, stirring very well to combine. Pack in a 2 cup jar and attach gift tag which includes instructions.
To use the free printable gift tag, print it and cut it out, then fold in half and in half again, so that the picture is on the front and the recipe directions are inside. Fill in the name of the gift recipient and your own name. Punch a hole in the top left corner of the tag to tie it to the jar.
Brown or microwave 1 pound of ground beef (Optional: you can chop and add an onion if you wish). Sprinkle 1/3 cup of chili seasoning mix over beef, and stir well. Add a 15 oz can of crushed tomatoes; a 15 oz can undrained kidney beans; a 14 oz can of baked beans. Simmer or reheat in the microwave for 20 minutes until flavors are mixed and chili is hot. Enjoy!
