    I know that you said you were cheating,and that's what I would have done... but since buying my slow cooker, I am using loads of herbs and spices - Cardomon pods - Get me !!!
    It's just as easy and to be honest, It tastes nicer...

    The only spices I add to chilli con carne is cumin, chilli powder and mixed herbs. It's so easy I've never tried a packet mix.

    cardamon pods ...ewww... be careful!!
    when i had a full fat indian, they had put cardamon pods in it and i didnt know - so i was busily munching away when i chewed on one of them eeerrrr.. It was gross ,like eating a perfumed soaked hard lump !!.I spat it out and carried on eating , then i went and ate another one ...that was it ,I threw my indian away OOOHHHH no cardamon pods -nasty things LOL
    I have made my own curries with them but now I count them in and count them out !!!!LOL
