Substitute for Chili Packet

Substitute for Chili Packet

A classic and family friendly spice mix for Chili


  • 8 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons salt
  • 4 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano, optional


Mix all spices together. Seal in a tightly lidded jar in a cool, dark cupboard. This will make about four to five pots of chili.

2 1/2 to 3 tablespoons generally works well for a pot of chili using a pound of ground beef.
