Some surprise ingredients there, Lexie. Brown rice flour, cocoa, and coffee ... I bet the latter two really perk up the flavors! ;-) I'm assuming this mix needs to be refrigerated since brown rice flour is included?

This looks wonderful. Another sneak ingredient that I put in my chili is a teaspoon or so of cinnamon. It makes it really yummy too. I'm going to make this to have on hand. Thanks!
