They have mixes that make various dishes easier. Takes the guess work out of what spices to use together.
The first one I used was the Championship Chili Spice Blend. Its gluten free and had a great chili recipe on the back. It had a mild flavor when you compare it to normal Texas chili spice.
Definitely has a strong chili pepper flavor though. I loved how bold it was. It's a great family meal that won my children's approval. I did prefer mine with hot sauce though.
Olde Bill's Favorite Chili

I also added bell pepper, onions, chopped tomatoes and green onions.

I modified this recipe just a bit by adding diced tomatoes.
They were delicious! Each kind was flavorful. The garlic shake was the perfect blend for a casserole I made too.
