Pretty good, will definitely be making this again! I will increase the pepper flakes next time though, it needs some more heat. :-)
Thnx for saving the day, Iowahorse. Needed some mix for Sloppy Joe Pasta. Did sub fresh garlic and did not have green chili pepper flakes so used some green Tabasco. Worked out well. A salad on the side, and it didn't need anything else. Thnx for posting your recipe.
This is the best of all these homemade spice packets. My friends and family won't eat the package mix anymore. GREAT JOB !
