We tend to not like spicy so I halved the chili powder. My 12-year-old just said, ”I think this actually my favorite kind!”
It was a big hit in our family, so thank you!
So glad you enjoyed!!
It was okay. Kind of spicy. I like the sweeter packet sloppy joe mixes at the grocery store better. Not thick enough either. Too runny.
I love making my own seasonings and this one sounds amazing!
