I asked my friend to bring me some packets of my favorite chili seasoning mix from the states as such imported food items are very expensive in Mexico. Unfortunately, she had a spill of one of her liquid items in her luggage, so when I came into the kitchen later, I was greeted by this display–arranged by her to dry out the packets. Yes, we had chicken and black bean chili the next day and it was delicious. Still eating it!!! Merry Xmas.
