Reviews for Spicy Chili Seasoning Mix
"I like this seasoning mix, and hope to be making it more often in the future."
"My family has been making this chili for over 12 years. I lost the recipe for the seasoning mix a LONG time ago and have been winging it. I'm SOOO grateful it is posted here. I love the internet! I've recently begun making this with 3 cans of beans and blending 1 1/2. It makes the chili a little thicker . The best tweak though is using tri tip instead of round steak. I usually cook the chili longer than an hour (remember, I was doing this from memory) and the tri tip is to die for! It becomes soo tender that it steals the show!"
"MICHIGANGIRL-may I make 3 suggestions? First-Please release your CapsLock-in the world of internet it is considered yelling. Second-Please give your ideas on changes (esp. nice AFTER trying the recipe) w/o dictating what is healthy for the rest of us. Third-why not be bold and try a new ingredient that you have 'never put in before'. (Why look for new recipes if you don't want to try something new?)"
"MICHIGANGIRL-may I suggest that, firstly, you take off your CapsLock--in the world of internet it indicates yelling--secondly, please share your suggestions on changes you made (even better after you've actually made the recipe) without making dictating what's healthy, and, thirdly, why not be bold and try an ingredient you've 'never put in before' (?)."
"Michigangirl-may I encourage you to, firstly, NOT use all capitals--in the world of internet that is equated as yelling--secondly, please share your suggestions for personalizing a recipe w/o offering judgments on what is healthy, and, thirdly, (re-oregano), why not be bold and try something you've 'never put in before'?"
"I've been using this recipe for years and I just wanted to say I love it!"
"This is a fantastic chili - unique with the 2 kinds of meat! I add a little dark chocolate, which gives it a new depth. Everybody LOVES this recipe! :)"
"This chili seasoning mix is so great! I wanted to make the Heartwarming Chili (here on TOH) but didn't have the chili seasoning packet. I mixed this up quick. I didn't have the coriander so I used cilantro instead, reduced the cayenne to 1/8 tsp and I also added onion powder and a little salt, just because I really like them. :) I will definitely keep this mix on hand."
"One of the easiest recipes I've made. The seasoning is useful for other dishes as well."
"Similar to others I've tried - love the coriander. Mexican oregano, not Italian, is part of every good bowl of 'Texas Red'!"
