Very disappointed. Expensive recipe that is very distinctly to spicy and virtually unedible as far as I am concerned. Should have know when recipe called for a tablespoon each of black pepper and red pepper as well as a host of other seasonings. Can not imagine that this was actually tested. Live and learn.

At first this didn't seem to appealing to me, but I decided to try it anyway with shrimp. You know what? It turned out great! So, I guess I'm a convert. Thanks for opening my eyes. Here's a YouTube I found for Mesquite Chili... It was amazing!
