chili seasoning packet
Saute meat add to stock pot, saute onions, carrots, celery, mushrooms with some ground black pepper add to pot along with the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for at least an hour or more. Taste for seasoning you can always add more spice.
I serve it with plain Greek yogurt (in place of sour cream), some grated cheddar, chopped onion, tortilla chips and a beer.
If you wanted to mix your own spices:
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
2 T minced dried onion
2T garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
Mix a large batch store in airtight container and it is ready when you want to make it.
