Best Chili Mix

Bowls of chili piled high with cheddar cheese or your other favorite toppings are a winter and fall staple in most parts of the country. In the summer, chili makes an appearance as a yummy topping for hot dogs and nachos. If you love chili all year-round, don’t settle for the canned stuff. Make your own, with a little help from a chili mix, which blends all of the seasonings in perfect quantities so that all you have to do is add in the rest — ground beef, beans, corn, tomatoes or favorite ingredients that you like. There are a ton of chili mixes to choose from, but here are four of our favorites.
