This has to be some of the very best chili we’ve ever eaten. The flavors are outstanding and it was incredibly easy to make.

I always make my own soups and chili from scratch but thought to buy a chili mix so I don’t have containers of spices sitting around and going to waste. Well this Montana Creekside Classic Chili mix is near perfect. It has the right amount of spices and not overpowering. The amount of onions, beans, etc. is also perfect and I love the fact that I had to add my own salt. I served the chili with jasmine rice and it was perfect. I will be buying more mixes from Anderson House.

Love this!!!
