    I really love this seasoning mix. I've made chicken several times from scratch, but I like this mix just as much! It has a great blend of spiciness. It's really difficult to find in my area though. I wish I could find the albondingas al chipotle too.

    I love how simple this recipe is, and the taste was delicious. But ... I found it too salty!!
