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! Read More

It's missing the red Chile pods to be considered Red Chile powder. Added with the other herbs/spices listed it would make a good Chile powder. As is this is just a spice pack. Chili is stew like Texan made with beans and meat. Chile comes from red or green Chile peppers. Read More

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!! Read More
