Homemade Chili Mix

Chili is perfect for days like this.  It's cold outside,  and a nice bowl of chili can warm you up in no time.  I know,  I know!  It's not Italian food.  But my family love to come home to chili after a long day.  And the aroma of homemade chili makes you smile (and hungry).
I want to share the chili mix I use,  so if you run out of the store bought one,  or you want to try something different here a homemade mix. 
Ingredients (equivalent of two store bought chili mixes(
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon dried, minced garlic
2 teaspoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 teaspoons Kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
You can make ahead,  put it in a tightly sealed ziploc bag and keep it in a dark dry place.  This way the flavors will mix and the chili mix will be stronger.  Keep no longer than 2 months.
