Every time I sit down at the dinner table with a big bowl of chili, I’m immediately reminded of growing up in Oklahoma. We would regularly have a slow cooker of chili for dinner, especially in the fall and winter months. It was something the whole family loved and it was easy to make!

You know those days when you kind of forget about dinner? You’re now in a panic and need an easy recipe that you can get on the table in under 30 minutes. This chili is made for those nights! It’s filled with ingredients that you probably have on hand and it’s so quick and simple to toss together.

It’s easy to make a big batch of the chili seasoning to keep on hand throughout the fall and winter months. It will last in the pantry for up to 2 years, so no worries about making too much and it going bad!

I grew up with beans in my chili and am still a “beans in the chili” kinda gal! If you want to leave out the beans, simply replace the chili beans with an extra can of diced tomatoes and a small can of tomato paste to make a no bean chili.

This gluten free chili is delicious reheated, so feel free to double the recipe and take the leftovers to work throughout the week. Or make two dinners out of the chili during the week! Two meals made in under 30 minutes? Count me in!

One of the most common ingredients found on is buffalo sauce. And you know what goes well with buffalo sauce? Ranch dressing! So today I’m introducing my homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix!

Making your own ranch seasoning mix at home is SO EASY and can add that delicious ranch flavor to a number of recipes. Add it to chicken marinades, rubs or breading. Toss potatoes in olive oil and ranch seasoning to make oven baked ranch fries. Or make homemade ranch dressing by combining the seasoning mix with milk and mayo.

Not a mayo fan? You can easily make homemade ranch dressing without mayo. Just substitute sour cream or greek yogurt and buttermilk!

I love making my own seasoning mixes at home because you know exactly what’s in it! This seasoning mix is vegetarian and gluten free. If you just want the herbs and spices, you can omit the buttermilk powder to also make the mix vegan, keto and whole 30 compliant.

Why buy ranch at the grocery store when it’s more affordable to easily make your own at home? You can make a double or triple batch so that you’ll always have the seasoning mix right in your pantry to use in recipes. Stored properly, this dry ranch mix will stay good in the pantry for up to 6 months. I like to store this seasoning mix in a mason jar.
