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

I also use the packet mixes but the schwatz ones for spaghetti bolognaise and beef stew!! I know its gonna taste like it did the last time I liked it and well I am just a crap cook, so much easier. lol
