I found this recipe because I forgot to pick up a mix at the store. Boy am I glad I forgot it! So easy and very good! I will say that kids might not like the heat so you can scale back on the cayenne and red pepper flakes if you want. I like heat so I left it alone. I added 4 cans of kidney beans, 1 can of diced tomatoes, an onion, and a pound of lean hamburger and made my chili like I usually do which is in the crock pot. I did add the mix to 1 3/4 cup of water other wise it would dry out and burn. Keeper thank you! Delicious!
This was the best chili spice mix I ever had! Thank you!
So easy to whip together and perfect amount of each spice, I'm happy I found it, thanks. :)
This was a very good recipe for a chili mix. My son would have liked a much hotter chili but then I don't. He can add more to his own bowl if he likes to have something hotter. We will be using this again. Going to make some packets up to have on hand for the next year.
This mix is soooo much better than the store bought stuff. It tastes much more authentic and has so many layers of flavors. Never buying the packet again!
Been trying to find a better mix than the Magic Castle's packet mix you could buy off their website (it's always sold out) and I was happy to have stumbled upon this recipe. It's easy and tastes so unbelievably good (I added sour cream, shredded sharp cheddar and avocado as toppings) that my mouth waters just thinking about it. I'm happy it makes a huge batch, too, because I could definitely eat this for days and not get tired of it. Perfect amount of spices!
excellent chili...haven't tasted any better...I have always looked for a good chili recipe and this is the one!!
I didn't have enough chili powder on hand, so I'm reviewing it based on that. I loved how simple it was and that I had all the spices on hand. I substituted corn starch for the flour to make it gluten free. Easy recipe, great taste! I used the seasoning on a pound of meat, 1 can tomato sauce, 1 can water (just use the tomato sauce can) for Frito Pie. :o)
Really, really good chili spices! I "tested" after about 30 minutes of simmering and it has a really nice bite to it. I will serve it tonight to a group and smile as the compliments come in. I doubled the batch 1/2 beef and 1/2 turkey and used a can of corn, black beans and 2 cans of chili beans. Thank you for the awesome recipe!!
Thanks so much for a great, helpful, and delicious recipe. I love this spice mix, and it's so much better than the packets from the store that we usually use. My husband is the chili-maker around here, and he swears he will never use a different kind of chili seasoning. (Which means, I better get busy making up a big batch!) By the way, this is great with tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream! Yummy!
