"I don't normally use a prepared chili mix but I was making recipe #227391 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!"
"Very nice mix. We really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting."
"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."
"Very Good. I always add a can of Rottell to my chili. With this recipe I can leae out the Rotell. It was too hot with it. Awesome! No more store bought for me!"
"Making tex-mex fiesta casserole#138871, and needed chili seasoning..Thank U for posting..."
"This was a very helpful guide for a chili seasoning. I definitely had to add a bit more cumin and chili seasoning, with a dash of cocoa on top of it. The flavor was very good. Thanks."
"Easy, inexpensive, smelled great. Not enough for my chili recipe, which calls for 1lb ground beef and about 4cups veggies...I had to double the seasoning recipe to achieve the flavor we wanted."
"This was good, I'll keep this on hand rather than using the packages."
"This was good. I did have to increase the chili powder, garlic and ground cumin to suit my tastes but I'll certainly never buy the McCormick packaged chili spices again! I used this to make chili in the crockpot. Everyone loved it. Thanks for posting!"
"I LOVE this."
"I used this in a casserole recipe calling for chili seasoning mix, and it worked great! It definitely added a lot of flavor. Thanks for posting!"
"Simply delicious! I usually use Lawry's Chili seasoning packets for my hamburger baked beans & love the way it tastes but not the high price of the packets. This was just as good for a fraction of the price. Thanks for a keeper!"
"Great seasoning mix. I use it for veggie chili and it works perfect. Thanks for the great recipe."
"This worked perfectly in recipe #207287. For purposes of WW core, I might omit the flour and sugar next time but for this time I used it and it all tasted great."
