McCormick Gluten-Free Chili Seasoning Mix

By | Dec 3, 2014

Rachel Rieger, National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) Patient Education Manager and I have been trying out McCormick’s gluten-free seasonings mixes. I tried out the turkey gravy mix a few weeks ago and Rachel is getting ready to try the brown gravy mix.  Last night, I went ahead and tried McCormick Gluten-Free Chili Seasoning Mix.

I should preface my review by letting you know that I love spicy food.  In fact, I gained spicy-food-fame in high school after winning an unofficial hot pepper eating contest with my friends (true story!).  Because of this love of spicy food, I was excited to try out the Chili Seasoning Mix.  It combines two of my favorite things: convenience and spicy flavor.

I decided to play it safe and stick with the suggested recipe on the back of the packet instead of trying out a new creation of my own.  It called for just 4 ingredients: a pound of lean ground turkey, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of beans-of-choice and (of course), McCormick Gluten-Free Chili Seasoning Mix.  Since I’m not a big bean fan, I decided to forgo the beans and add in some extra tomatoes, onions and garlic cloves instead.  In about 15-20 minutes, my chili was done and ready to go.

McCormick Gluten-Free Chili Seasoning Mix: Taco Bowls

Taco bowls!

I’ve talked before about my love of The Perfect Taco Bowl – a rare “As Seen on TV” product that actually works.  I decided this chili was as good a reason as any to pull out the wraps and make an edible bowl.  I shared my creation with my friend and we both agreed that this meal was as tasty as it was easy to make.  Since my friend is a spicy-food-lover too, we added some cayenne pepper and garlic powder to kick it up a notch.  We didn’t think that the mix was lacking flavor, though; we just wanted that little extra heat.  Whether you’re into burn-your-mouth spicy food or if you like a milder heat, this mix is perfect for you.  You can please the different taste buds in your family by adding (or not adding) extra spices once the chili is dished out.

I also love how versatile this mix is. You can use it to make a quick frying pan chili like I did, try it in a slow cooker, or make your own tacos and pile on the toppings of your choice.
