I'm inclined to believe it was the cumin versus the chili powder. Does "stinky feet" come to mind????
Welcome to the site!!!!! It's tough when one flavor overpowers and you don't know what to do. I just made some red curry chicken - geez, there was no taming it. I guess I'll measure next time - or I'll just know not to add 1/2 a jar to the pot!!!!!
