As a chili seasoning this does not work for me because it is missing the Cumin, a necessary ingredient for chili and southwestern dishes. and the use of seasoned salt and pepper is very strange indeed. there are so many different varieties of seasoned salt and pepper. however, as an everyday seasoning, using plain salt and pepper, it is good.

Great as a place to start, but WAY too salty for our tastes. About half the amount called for is better for us. I left out the thyme and oregano (those don't go in chili in this house), and added 1Tbsp cocoa powder (that ALWAYS goes in chili in this house). Once we "fixed" it it was delicious!

This worked perfectly for me. I'm in a location where I can't find pre-packaged Chili Seasoning Mixes and this did the trick! I found the amounts to be a good start and allowed me to feel more confident in altering the flavors of the chili I was making. I made extra, placing in little jars and gave it to the people who attended the gathering, with a list of suggested uses. It was a big hit.

This mix is OK if you are in a pinch and need chili seasoning mix quickly, but I prefer to just buy it and not have to make it.

This is a great seasoning mix, I didn't follow the exact measurments but used all the seasonings and spices!

Just fixed this with some combo lean ground turkey/ground beef for a healthier chili. I'm on a diet program right now with very specific requirements and as much as I want to lose the weight, I hate giving up foods that I love and eating food that "feels like" diet food. This was perfect for the chili that made, with that little bit of heat to give it a good kick. Hubby even loved it, lean ground turkey and all. I only used about a tablespoon of the mix for 7 oz. of meat mixed with tomatoes, onions, etc. Next time I may add some cumin to the mix and cut back on the season salt. One thing I did was after everything had been prepared, I sprinkled a little powdered stevia on top and folded it in. It was a nice touch which makes me think I'll do it again. Either way, thanks for this great recipe!
