    can u use sweet pepers chill

  2. Jennifer

    What can I use instead of allspice? I am also allergic to that.

  3. REY A.

    make it and taste it first. you will know how much to use. kinda like salt. not enough or too much won’t be good.

  4. Deb

    How many tablespoons of this chili seasoning per pound of meat?

    • REY A.

      Deb, it’s more like by 1/ 4 cup per pound of meat. like in a stew. for a brisket rub then I would blend it to a powder and use 1 1/2 cup per 12 lb. brisket. don’t forget to inject it too. on chicken an injection is a must. or peel back the skin and rub it all over then skin it. lightly sprinkle on top too. do not add any other spices or flavoring to get this recipe results.
      more later after using it to make carnitas and for tamale meat seasoning.

    Thank You Jenny!!! Just made this. So healthy without salt!! Your recipes are fantastic. I have used the pizza dough, bbq chicken pizza, bread and dessert rolls(the ones which you braid and the cinammon rolls filled with raspberry jam), lemon pie, foccacia, bean soup, and probably more!!

    Interesting. A Chili Powder mix without Chili powder? Our family loves homemade chili con carne. I make a mix that has Chili powder, Cumin, Garlic, Onion, Salt and Pepper. It also goes into Taco meat, Enchiladas and anything with a Southwest flair. My Hispanic Friends love this.too I Love your videos. Great Stuff.

    Ready to try this mild seasoning recipe – looks good! Question: how much of this do I put in a batch?…please tell me proportion. Thanks so much!

    No salt? Too flat, needs salt and pepper. Added some curry powder too.

  11. Maria

    Made this,, this morning, added corn kernels, diced sweet potato, some hot pepper flakes, Sriracha ketchup, dry yellow mustard and some sliced cooked chicken breast, to make this a complete meal. Delish! Thanks far a great recipe. I’ve followed you for a long time, you make every recipe look so easy!

      I couldn’t agree more. I want Jenny to know how grateful I am that her recipes are tasty without being hot. I’ve been struggling with this issue for years because my son has GERD, and most recipes everywhere nowadays seem to rely on hot spices, which, by the way, are often expensive and/or hard to find.
