Simply follow the directions on the side of the bag and simmer away. It tells you how many tomatoes to use and gives you options to freeze the base instead of canning or you could use it right away. (Also, if you don't have fresh tomatoes, no worry, you can also use canned tomatoes.) So many options makes these seasoning packets very flexible to your own needs and abilities.
Then process your pint sized jars in a hot water bath for 40 minutes.
Later this winter all you will have to add is some browned hamburger and beans or maybe some onions, and you'll have a quick and easy chili dinner. I was very pleased with the taste of this chili base as it wasn't too hot so you could easily add more chili powder to suit your taste if need be. But over all I thought it had a warm and homey taste to it and we look forward to opening these jars come cold weather.
