Who would have thought to use our Kansas City Southern Rib Rub to season chili? Laurie, a member of the Tasting Crew, that’s who! We had to try some for ourselves… and it’s delicious! In fact, I’m eating it as I write this post. 🙂

Laurie had a great idea to make some chili using Kansas City Southern Rib Rub, and we thought she was so creative! Here’s what she had to say:
It has been raining so hard here, that the thought of chili sounded good for dinner last night. I created a recipe using the rib rub spice. The chili turned out awesome. Not only was the flavor delicious, I loved the fact that I didn’t have to measure out a bunch of different seasonings. A true time-saver!
Yesterday I was trying to think of what to make for dinner when I got Laurie’s email and recipe. I had everything on hand, so I made a batch of her sweetly named “Caboose Chili.” Greg and I loved it! Thank you, Laurie, for contributing such a creative recipe, naming it after Caboose, and for participating in the Caboose Tasting Crew!
