This is a very good start for those that don't want that bold chili taste. This mix did not have enough chili powder for my taste. Instead of 4 teaspoons you should start out with 4 Tablespoons of chili powder. I also added 1 teaspoon of paprika. I also only used 2 Tablespoons of flour. When browning my 2.5 lbs ground beef I put about a tablespoon of chili powder in. Drain the grease then put about 3 to 4 tablespoons of the mix in with the ground beef to coat the meat as if you were making gravy. Add 1 large can of tomato juice, 4 cans 14.5 oz ea. of diced tomatoes. 70 oz's of undrained kidney beans, 1 large diced yellow onion, 1 diced green pepper, 1 diced red pepper, 2 stalks of diced celery. Cook until veggies are tender. Add straight chili powder to taste and you have hit a homerun. As I said, this is a very good base. just not enough chili powder for my taste.
