We adore the flavor of McCormick white chili seasoning mix, but it’s become harder and harder to find over the years! As such, we reproduced the taste and created our own homemade white chili seasoning mix.
White chili seasoning mix is a robust blend of onion, cumin, garlic, oregano, cilantro, and chili peppers. The seasoning mix is perfect for whipping up a pot of white (chicken or turkey) chili in less than twenty minutes.
