I don't normally use a prepared chili mix but I was making Weight Watchers Crock Pot Chicken Chili and it called for a package of chili mix, so I used this recipe. This made a great pot of chili and I would use this recipe again. Thanks.

Great chili seasoning mix!! I am making Tamale Pie and it was just right for the type of seasoning I like. Not too hot, and not too mild. Will have this made up and on hand from now on. Thanks, Dancer--Carole in Orlando

This is GREAT! I was in the middle of making a big pot of Turkey Chili when I realized I didn't have a seasoning packet. So I figured I would look it up on here and found this recipe. To my great suprise it was SO much better than the store bought packet and I had all the ingredients on hand! I will definately be skipping the store packets and using this one from now on. I doubled the recipe (I was making a lot) and only used half the red pepper flakes it called for as I have little toddlers. The whole family and our guests loved it! Thank you for a great MONEY SAVING recipe! I love when I can make great things without having to go to the store! ;)

Its in the pot right now! Whenever I am making a recipe for the first time I try to follow it exactly. However, I'd already added quite a bit of fresh diced onion to my ground beef, so I left out the dried onion. I also went a little less on the red pepper flakes until I could figure out how hot it would be. I err on the side of mild.
With my 1.25 lb of ground beef and onions, I put in 2 cans of diced tomatoes, a can of red kidney beans, a can of black beans and a can that says "chili beans in a tasty sauce" (from the smell I think it would be mild.) I just dumped the cans right in with the spice that I had poured over my meat & onions. (In hindsight, I probably should have added 1/2 c. water to the spice and meat and let it simmer a while before added the tomatos and beans.) I also throw in 1c. of thawed frozen corn. Becuase I had new white peppercorns to grind and some oregano from the spice store in town, I added a bit of those but I did a taste test before and they aren't necessary! :)
Thanks for the recipe...I'll be using it again!

Seems really good. I didn't have any chili powder, so I am using diced green chilis to taste. And, I didn't add the onion powder (doesn't agree with me). I add fresh shallots to the chili.

This was very mild and tasty. I made a big pot of chili with over 2 lbs of meat and 2 cans of kidney beans and used the whole recipe for that. I didn't have seasoned salt so I substituted with a sea salt and parsley blend and paprika for that, plus I added about 1T dried oregano, in addition to all the seasoning I put with meat, onions and garlic. I omitted the flour due to gluten intolerance in a family member. I could have substituted cornstarch, but didn't think of it. I will definitely use again since I like the mild taste because you can always add more heat if desired. I did not add the sugar. I made this again and want to put this notation for my own use. Instead of using canned kidney beans, I used this time about 1/2 lb. dried beans, soaked overnight, and added a can of beer with the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce (1 can each for 2 lbs. of ground beef). I also added about 1/2 c red wine and about 2 T of refrigerated minced garlic, and used the entire recipe of seasoning mix for the 1 batch of chili.

Thank you so much for an easy and very good seasoning mix. My dh kept saying this is good chili. My 6 year old ate it up in no time too. No more buying packets of seasoning.
