DIY Chili Spice Blend

How often have you found yourself halfway through a recipe only to discover a crucial seasoning is missing? It’s a common kitchen dilemma. That’s why I began making my own spice blends. The beauty of DIY blends lies in the ability to tailor them to your taste preferences. Once prepared, store them in an airtight container for long-lasting freshness.

Recipe for Homemade Chili Seasoning

Glass vs. Plastic Storage for Spices

For optimal longevity, opt for an airtight glass container over plastic. Glass containers are less porous, preventing air from infiltrating and potentially spoiling your spices. Additionally, glass lids offer a tighter seal. Minimize light exposure to your spices, especially if stored outside of a cabinet. Your chili seasoning can remain fresh for up to 6 months.
