I love to make my Chilli Con Carne from scratch. That means I make my own chilli powder, dried beans and frank steak not ground beef.
2 Tbsp. Sweet Paprika
1 Tbsp. oregano
1 tsp. Cayenne
1 tsp. Cumin
Put the lot in a bullet or spice grinder and process into a fine powder
Note: If you are unlike me and are not allergic to garlic and have no plans to invite to imbibe in yours, you can add 1 tsp. garlic powder
