I made it and at the first 'taste test' I thought it was perfect; DH did too! Funny thing wassss: I had forgotten to put in chili powder!!! ...then I noticed I didn't even have any!!!!
Butttttt, I haddd put in some bloody mary mix that was really spicy (really too spicy to use in a drink...think that's why it was on sale at a discount store!)!
ANYway, it turned out to be the best ever chili
LOL. I have to ask what brand the Bloody Mary mix is. Down here in Louisiana it is very hard to imagine a BM that is too spicy...although I did have a spicy curry in Canada that was too much for even THIS cast iron gut!!!! Those chefs from India know a thing or two about spices!!!!
Now, that's a great way to improvise a recipe. (Chili is pretty forgiving as it is.)
It is D.L. Jardine's Texas Red Snapper Bloody Mary Mix distributed from Buda, Texas. On line price is $7.50, but I bought locally at TJ Max for $3.50. It's good stuff IMHO. Has no red snapper in tho..., but does have anchovies...LOL!
I've used in meatloaf instead of the tomato juice my recipe calls for. Really add a nice tang/spice; loveeee it.
Same happened to me, but no chili powder. Had some hot sauce in house so added about 10 drops and chili tasted delicious.
If it worked for you...GREAT!
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Glad it worked for you!
