      I just spent 30 minutes looking for this recipe! I used the last of my supply a few weeks ago and was having withdrawals. I made this recipe, but did not add it to my cookbook. I was in a panic. I HAVE to have this. When I want just Chile powder I leave out the herbs, for chili powder I include everything....This is delicious! I do reduce the cloves; however. They seem to be a predominant flavor when I just want them in the background. I have used this mix at least 100 times and as many different meals. Thank you Sue for making me look like a brilliant cook.
