Chili Seasoning

It is cold, and icy here in Western Montana. Perfect weather for a great big pot of Chili to be simmering on the stove!

I like a really flavor full chili, and once we had to be cautious of gluten in our foods, that made it a challenge to just grab a seasoning packet off the grocery shelf like I used to.

I have a bit of a DIY attitude, and many of the recipes I have tried for chili seasoning did not leave me or my family completely satisfied. So, when I tweaked it enough that my husband looked at me and said, “this one is good, hunee!” I knew it was the winner!

Ingredients

We buy most of our bulk spices from here

Method

  • Mix everything together, getting the clumps out before adding to your soup. This mixture is for one large pot of chili, large meaning it will feed more than 12 people because that is how we roll around here.
  • If your pot of soup is small, add by the teaspoon until you reach your desired level of flavoring. We enjoy very flavorful food, and I suggest that you own your flavors here.

***If you are following the Trim Healthy Plan, this blend would make a great addition to any chili of your choice, in any fuel type.***

Brown the ground meat, and drain off fat. Add the Chili Seasoning, tomatoes, and water (if using). Let simmer for 25 minutes so that the flavors meld together. Own your flavors and adjust if necessary.

***The fuel that this chili falls into on the Trim Healthy Plan is going to be determined by the amount of fat in the meat you use, 96% or lower would be E or FP, and anything higher will be an S***

Italian Seasoning

I love Italian food, especially spaghetti over my Southern Style Green Beans!

But, I want more flavor than your typical Italian Seasoning blend, so I made my own to go in my Gluten Free Spice Cabinet.

DIY spices are economical, and easier to make than it appears.

Pumpkin Spice Blend

Pumpkin Spice, is a blend you either love all year, or tolerate seasonally. But, because fall is my favorite season, I am an all year kind of gal.

Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Gluten Free Sourdough Bread, and Pumpkin Quinoa Loaf are all amazing with this flavorful blend, and it will be a great addition to your Gluten Free Spice Cabinet or Pantry.

Zesty Ranch Seasoning

I love ranch in all the things….popcorn, chicken marinades, dips and dressings.

But, I love mine with a kick to it. All I can figure is that my husband’s love of spicy food is rubbing off on me.

Here is my Ranch Seasoning mix, please tag me on Instagram @lifeinthetreehouse or on Facebook @NicoleBurch when you make something with this. I would love to see it!

Cajun Seasoning

It’s time to build your Gluten Free Pantry! I think every home should have one, and DIY seasoning blends are not only more flavorful than most you can buy at the store, but also economical and have cleaner ingredients.

We really enjoy spicy things in the Treehouse, some of us more than others, and my husband is a good old southern boy who loves any cajun dish he can get his hands on.

Here is my Cajun Seasoning Blend. If you make it, and enjoy it, please tag me @lifeinthetreehouse on Instagram or @NicoleBurch on Facebook, I would love to see what you make with it!
