Written on Recognizing the Little Culinary Joys:

RE: Chili Maya

I recently tried a chili seasoning mix created by a lady who lives here in Knoxville, who has been bringing delicious recipes to our parties for quite some time now.

She swears she has no industrial kitchen experience or culinary degree, and that she is not related to Paula Deen, but I hardly believe her.

Anywho, we've been asking her for quite some time to share her recipes so that we may re-create some of her magical dishes in our own homes.

A few weeks ago,she presented us with a package of her one of her creations.

I took the little bag and read the label which stated "Chili Maya is a special blend of chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, chocolate and other spices."

I thought to myself, CHOCOLATE IN CHILI?

After reading that there was chocolate in her chili mix, I was quite skeptical, and I almost did not buy it, but after she offered me a money back guarantee, I reluctantly decided to make the purchase.

I took the seasoning packet home and discovered that there were 2 sets of instructions.

One for Chili Maya with meat, and another for Vegetarian Chili Maya.

I followed the enclosed instructions for the Chili Maya with meat, and I must say, that is the best chili I have ever eaten in my life.

I never thought something like chocolate would work in a spicy food like chili, but now I am a believer.

I encourage everyone to support this small business lady by trying her sinfully delicious Chili Maya Seasoning Mix.

There's a money back guarantee, so what have you got to loose?

Also, she is sponsoring a Chili Recipe Contest.

All Old North Knoxville residents of ages and skill levels are welcome to participate.

First prize is 100.00

Thank you.
