Three Bean Chili Mix Gift Jar

Happy Sunday, I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I have been on a roll this past week with starting to prepare for the upcoming holiday season. Yesterday, I did some experimenting and put together a White Chocolate Cranberry Cookie Mix Jar. I have received similar gifts over the years and always really enjoy them. It turned out great, so today I decided to try creating one for a dinner recipe. Here is what I came up with: Three Bean Chili Mix Gift Jar.

Here are some other great holiday recipe ideas:

Three Bean Chili Mix Ingredients

 

 
How to Make the Three Bean Chili Mix Gift Jar

In a small bowl, combine the onion flakes and garlic powder and set aside. In a separate small bowl, combine the chili powder and cayenne (if desired). In a third small bowl, combine the parsley and oregano. Then, layer the ingredients in this order, taking care to firmly press the ingredients down before adding each layer.

  1. Kidney beans
  2. Onion flake and garlic powder mixture
  3. Pinto beans
  4. Black beans
  5. Chili powder and cayenne mixture
  6. Parsley and oregano mixture
  7. Cumin

IMPORTANT NOTE: There will likely be some space open between the cumin and the top of the jar that will not be visible because of the lid. If this is the case, you can simply add a few more tablespoons of beans or a scrunched up paper towel or napkin to reach the very top of the jar. This will keep all of the ingredients tightly packed in the jar and prevent shifting of the ingredients

After adding all the ingredients to the jar, seal and attach the gift tag.

You should always add tomatoes and salt at the end, as they keep the beans from softening. I would add the tomatoes the last half hour. I think I will change the label to reflect this.

I just made this chili to make sure it worked before I go giving gift jars away at Christmas time. The beans softened just fine after cooking for 3 hours on my stove. As far as taste goes, some "doctoring up" is needed beside salt and pepper. I like some ground cinnamon in my chili so I will add that to my serving. A little brown sugar and some hot sauce will make it a perfect bowl of chili. A great gift for family coming at Christmas.

Hi. I would love to try this recipe but I joined it calls for an 8 oz. can of tomato paste. Do you think 6 oz. would work because that is all I have available where I live? Or did you mean 8 oz. of tomato sauce?

Yes, you can just use a 6 ounce can of tomato paste and it will turn out fine :-) I hope you enjoy it!!!

I thought you need to soak dried beans for hours, even overnight, before you cook them in order for them to cook properly. Are the beans soft after only cooking 2-3 hours?

Hi Fanny,

You do not need to soak the beans overnight IF you slow cook them for 2 to 3 hours. They will soften and as the beans break down, they will actually enhance the flavor of the broth.
