Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

Here is another great homemade bridal, hostess, house-warming, etc... gift. Along with the chili mix, I included a pot to cook the chili in and 4 chili bowls, and a jar of cornbread mix. Idea and recipe adapted from Diane Phillips' The Perfect Mix.

  3. Include these directions with the chili mix: in a large Dutch oven, add 2 tablespoons oil; let heat over medium heat.

  5. Add in chili mix, 1-16 ounce can tomato puree, and 2 cups water.
