♥Painted Desert Chili Mix in A Jar♥ 

  • 1/4 cup dried parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp. dried onion flakes
  • 2 Tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp. cumin
  • 2 Tbsp. paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. white cornmeal
  • 2 Tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic granules
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp. dried parsley
  • 1 cup dried pinto bean
  • 1/4 cup small dried white bean
  • 1/4 cup small dried black beans
  • 1 cup dried kidney beans

The ingredients are layered, like sand art. Don’t worry about getting the layers even. The desert effect comes from the rippled appearance of the spices. One tip is to carefully add each seasoning along the edges of the jar, then fill in the middle of the layer. This way all of the beautiful colors show along all of the edges. 

For making the soup, add directions to the jar for gift giving:

  • 1 medium diced onion
  • 4 (15 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8 ounce) cans tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 49 oz. tomato juice
  • 2 lbs. ground beef or 2 lbs. ground turkey, browned 

Fill remainder of the pot with water. Bring to boil. Let simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Add salt and pepper to taste.
