It does a pretty good job

I do like this kit, it makes a nice chilli once you tweak it a bit.
My first use I followed the (somewhat vague) directions and, up until the last step, seemed to be going OK. However, the finishing pack had something in it which I personally disliked. I cannot put my finger on exactly what it was. But the dish did not improve with the addition of this bag, it went backwards. Personal opinion, obviously.
My second attempt, I sieved the finishing pack to remove the larger particles. I did think it may have had coriander leaf, which I am not a huge fan of, as you can see green leafy particles in it. This mostly worked on those bits and also removed a significant amount of what appear to be small flower buds along with other items. The other spices and finer particles went into the dish and this seems to have worked, a much better result,
I would like to see the 'holy trinity' of whole dried chillies supplied - ancho, guajillo, and pasillas, for the sauce base.
Will buy again, and continue tweaking to see what else can be done.

Got the kit for my brother he cooked it for me following the recipe cooked it with beef chuck and pork cube.
Tasted amazing very well balanced left out some of the small chili for less heat still turned out great.
We are definitely buying this product again and will tell all our Mex loving friends too.

Loved it

Basically followed the instructions using beef cheeks. No pork and I added some garlic because everything needs a little garlic. It was awesome.
Instructions are a little vague but that just gives you little more room to tailor it to your own tastes.
Highly recommend

You NEED to try this

Just the best. The flavour the chilis from this kit give is beyond compare. Forget your ground beef / mince chili with whatever spice dust you use, this is absolutely next level. No, really. I used cubed chuck steak and pork shoulder, browned first and chopped onion fried in beef tallow. I then added the soaked , de-seeded and blended chili mix, cooked as per included instructions. If you use lard, beware, the smell of it frying can be quite strong, beef dripping works well. Unbelievable. A little sour cream, some chopped coriander if you like it, some cornbread or rice........ heaven. I hope Chili Mojo continues to stock this kit as I have been woken up to how good real chili con carne can be ! !
