This is from The Marlboro Country Cookbook I think it has a nice earthy taste to it. I also like to add 4tsp. coriander seeds, I toast all the seed and then grind them. Hope you enjoy.

This was just great. I only used 1 T. of the mix because I was cooking for kids. This was nice and mild and yet flavorful enough for the grown-ups. I did add the whole coriander (toasted) as suggested and I would do that again. Will be saving to my cookbook. Thank You, Vicki! :)

this is the best seasoning I have found yet!! (and I've bought every brand I've seen) My husband says this is the best chili I've ever made.......I do think 3 Tbsp. is too much for us....even tho the family likes "spicy", about 1 and a half TBS. is just right for us.(or at least for me, Ha) I hope I don't lose this is just perfect. Thank you for posting it.

What a wonderful idea this is! Now I don't have to carry little jars of chili powder back to Japan from the US. I made up the seasoning mix today, adding the suggested coriander seeds, but leaving out the garlic powder (I use a lot of fresh garlic, anyway) and salt. Left everything else as specified. Made a very large pot of delicious chili this evening, and am floating on air. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
