We love chili in this house. It’s so good! And this is my favorite chili seasoning of all. Anything from Gwen’s site is delicious, but this is toward the top of my list.
Ranch Seasoning Mix
This isn’t just good as a salad dressing or a veggie dip. Make some black beans in the Instant Pot and add some ranch seasoning to them. They’re great just like that or in a burrito, on some chicken breast, or mixed with rice.
