Double or triple all amounts, this will keep up to 8 months covered tightly at room temperature, or 1 year if refrigerated or store in freezer --- the cayenne is optional add in for extra heat, you could also omit the flour, I add it in for thickening :)

Excellent. I didn't add the sugar or buillion. I added smoked paprika and chipotle powder. Didn't need the flour, our chili is very thick. I doubled the cayenne, we like it spicy. Will use again, thanks!

Made this seasoning mix exactly as written, including adding the cayenne pepper, and then I also added a teaspoon each of garlic salt, cocoa powder and paprika. This was the BEST chili seasoning ever. Kittencal got all the measurements right! I made chicken chili and used this seasoning blend. Mmmm! Thanks!!

I'm really enjoying making my seasoning blends from Zaar recipes. It's fun and I know exactly what I have got in them. I made this last night and put chili ingredients in the crockpot at just past midnight so it would be ready for the guys to take with them early this morning. It worked perfectly. I had to sample (quality control you know ~wink~) and it made excellent chili. I left out the cayenne for this bunch and it still gave a very full flavored chili. Thanks Kit!
