Mamma's Chili Spice mix. *gift idea*

This is pretty much a generic recipe/mix you can find it any where on the internet BUT that's because it's so good! I remember when I first used this, it had no instructions on how MUCH to add to your meat/meat sub when cooking. Let's just say I can still remember the heat on the back of my tongue years afterwards. But if you add and taste as you go, you will be fine. Remember when it comes to heat, less is more.

Really simple to throw together and you will say bye-bye to the packaged stuff you were buying!

Here's what you will need:

1/4 cup flour
1/2 tablespoon of crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon of dried minced onion
1 tablespoon of dried minced garlic
4 teaspoon of chili powder
2 teaspoon of white sugar
2 teaspoon of ground cumin
2 teaspoon of dried parsley
2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of dried crushed basil
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper


1.- Add to either a container you can seal or ziploc baggie and mix.
2.- When cooking add a little at a time until you get desired spice and flavor. Remember less is more when it comes to heat, unless you love heat!

Final note if you want to give as a gift:

If you want to make this as gift:
Multiply the above ingredients by 4 to get three Mason 8 oz jelly jars.
Multiply by 8 to get six mason 8oz jelly jars.
Multiply by 12 to get nine masons 80z jelly jars.
Multiply by 16 to get twelve mason 8oz jelly jars.
