I tried a different brand of chili mix pkt. It's hard to find the Gold Star brand anymore these days. I used to buy them by the case online, but lately haven't been able to get any. Michael found these in a local store so he bought me a couple. I made it yesterday. OH MAN. It's so good. I almost dare to say I like it BETTER than the original. (oh don't shoot me please). I put the kidney beans, and onions, and soup crackers on mine. (along with cheese of course). Oh it's soooo good.
Oooh (update): I found these pkts on amazon. I just ordered a case of 24. I'm set for the year.
