SO HOW'D IT GO?

No, you used the right one, but it's a typo. That should be 2 teaspoons. I had written Admin and asked them to change it but I guess it didn't happen.

Thanks. I normally like some heat, but this was just painful! I'll throw it out and give it another go. Thanks YG!

Question about the "chili powder"--there is the chili powder that one uses to put on top of chili soup, and it has garlic powder and salt and some other spices mixed in with paprika and cayenne (I think), and then there is chili powder that is simply ground up chili peppers, nothing else. Which did you use? I used the ground of chili peppers, and it was REALLY spicy. Did I use the wrong one?

I forgot to say...if you add 2 tablespoons of pure cocoa powder (the bitter kind) to the mix it is also good for chili.
