    Finally, a key to cooking American recipes that call for "chilli powder" I can blend this up and go from there. In Australia (and Asia generally) chilli powder is just 100% ground chillis. Using it in US recipes ends in disaster!  -  26 Dec 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A very good blend of spices to sub store bought. Thank you Terri for your recipe.  -  27 Dec 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Didn't have a packet and my sister couldn't find any in the store. Apparently the threat of snow got everyone in a chili mood. Found this recipe and had everything except onion powder and my oregano is a wild Greek one that is so fragrant that I used half of what the recipe called for. 2 tablespoons of this, a little salt and veggie broth were the only seasoning the chili needed. FANTASTIC!!  -  12 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
