Amazing Taste Seasoning...why not try it?

I was recently contacted by Sara of Amazing Taste Foods. She asked me if I'd like to try some of their sprinkle on seasoning packets. Well, yeah. I do love to try new things, and I'd probably try almost anything at least once- you never know until you try it, right?! I received all 9 of their Amazing Taste Seasoning packets to try! They have 5 basic "protein specific" packet which include Beef, Pork, Burger, Poultry and Seafood; there are also 4 general packets- Chili, Fajita, Malibu and zesty Steak House. I don't use spice packets very often since I have a habit of buying all kinds of spices and herbs...and then I mix my own, but I have been known to grab a few packets to keep around the house in case of laziness or in-a-hurry-ness. You can find these packets in a lot of grocery stores....here is what they look like (along w/ a listing of the stores where you can find them). They even threw in a few recipes!

I decided to use the Pork seasoning and the Chili seasoning. I grabbed: about a pound and a half of thin cut pork chops and sprinkled them with a half a packet of Amazing Taste pork seasoning. I then heated up the grill pan, misted it with some pan spray, and "grilled" up some chops!

Next I used: 1 (19.75 oz.) can of Black Beans, drained and added 1/2 packet of Amazing Taste Chili Seasoning and 1 1/4 c. Chicken Broth. I also put on a pot of brown rice to cook while the beans simmered. Once the rice was cooked (about 20 mins.), the beans were ready.

The result was VERY GOOD:

"Grilled" Pork Chops w/ brothy Black Beans and Brown Rice.

This pork seasoning has a "hint of grill flavor"...which is why I chose to use the grill pan. It really did taste like I threw it outside on the charcoal grill (which I love dearly). The beans were slightly spicy and full of flavor! All I had to add was the beautiful, chewy & nutty brown rice and some cream with a sprinkling of fresh herbs. So, next time you're at the market, grab a couple of packets of Amazing Taste Seasonings...I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Oh, and of course, there is no MSG added.
