Salt-Free Chili Seasoning

Salt Free Chili Seasoning

After a decade’s worth of low-sodium living I know what a pain it can be not only having to cook every meal, but finding all the necessary salt-free ingredients to make that cooking possible. It boggles the mind why something with less (in this case, salt) should cost MORE. I understand that fewer people want to buy salt-free (insert whatever), making production costs greater, but still. It can leave you a little salty having to shell out big bucks for salt-free beans, soups, sauces, and so on. In an effort to make all of our lives happier, healthier, and cheaper, I’ve decided to share some recipes for simple salt-free staples. Like chili seasoning! An essential blend that adds SO much flavor without a single milligram of sodium, this recipe can be adjusted to suit your own taste. It’s quick, affordable, and always ready when you want it. DIY, baby!

    Hi, thanks for the recipe! I just made it, but I’m new to making my own spices so I’m not sure how much to use at a time. I’m making a pot of chili that has 1 lb of beans in it. Can you tell me how much I should put in? Thank you.

      Hi Ashley! I’d start with a teaspoon of the seasoning, stir it in, taste, and go from there. Especially with a spicy seasoning, it’s really important not to overdo it, and it’s hard to know how much someone else might enjoy! Good luck with the chili. Hope it’s delicious. Best wishes, Christy
