One Pot Chili Mix Recipe
  • I recommend that you start out with this smaller one pot batch of chili mix, and adjust the seasonings to your family's taste before making a bigger jar.
  • 1 teaspoon glucomannan
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½-1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ t. garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon crushed chilli pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • 1½ Tablespoons minced, dried onions
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika (optional, but sooooo tasty!)
Bulk Chili Mix Recipe
  • 2½ Tablespoons Glucomannan powder
  • ⅓ cup chili powder
  • 2 Tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2-3 Tablespoons salt
  • 1½ Tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoons crushed chilli pepper flakes (more or less to taste), or use one dried ancho chili for milder flavor
  • ¾ cup minced, dried onions
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika (optional)
One Pot Chili Mix Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients into your pot of chili (Homemade Chili Recipe below), and stir to blend.
  2. Make a small batch first, and adjust the measurements and flavors to your liking before adapting them to the big batch.
Bulk Chili Mix Instructions
  1. Place glucomannan, chili powder, cumin, salt, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and sugar in a blender jar.
  2. Blend into a fine powder. (Or just skip the blender and dump all into your jar)
  3. Pour into a clean and dry glass storage jar.
  4. Add chili pepper flakes and dried onions to the mix and shake to blend.
  5. Label "Chili Mix", and note the recipe for making homemade chili below.
  6. I also like to stick on a label with the bulk mix recipe, for easier refills...and shove a little coffee scoop in there if you've got an extra one.
One Pot of Homemade Chili- E Style
  1. Brown one pound of ground beef in a heavy bottomed chili cookin' pot of your choice.
  2. Crumble and really brown it well until the bottom of the meat takes on a deep caramel brown color. (Do you smell that wonderfulness!?!!)
  3. Now, drain off the fat, and put your meat into a colander, and rinse with warm water. I know this is a weird step...this removes the fat, and allows you to use regular ground beef in an E style meal! Cool, huh!
  4. Saute one diced onion in the chili pot for a few minutes, and then add your beef back into the pot.
  5. Add 3 Tablespoons (equal to a scant ¼ cup) of your dry spice mix to the ground beef.
  6. Stir well, and add in one 15 ounce can of plain tomato sauce, one can of petite diced tomatoes, ¼ c. water and a two 15 oz. cans of drained beans (chili or kidney beans.) If you like a bit more spice, add a small can of diced green chilis to the pot.
  7. Simmer uncovered for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  8. I would love it if you would rate this recipe, or tell me your favorite tweaks!
For an E style meal, you can have up to 1½ cups of beans total.
Rinsed ground beef crumbles have anywhere from 4 grams per 3.5 ounces (for the cheapest 30% ground beef) to 3 grams for a leaner 10% ground.
If you'd rather indulge in the melty cheese, and move to an S, then you can add your one can of beans, and serve yourself, then add the additional can before serving the family.
