    Does Anyone Use Onion Powder

    I want to make a big batch of chili since it's starting to get cold. I was going to share with my niece and nephew but remembered that they won't eat chili with onions or green peppers. I figure I could cut the green peppers in chunks and they could remove them, but was wondering if onion powder would work in place of the onions.

    Sometimes kids are just plain weird.

    I use onion powder in a lot of dishes. I don't like chunks of onion either. As for the pepper, they might not like the flavor. I know my son doesn't . Picky eaters are hard to cook for sometimes.

    I use onion powder in a lot of recipes. However, if you are using chili peppers in the chili do you really need the green peppers? I never put them in mine. The chili flavor overrides the green pepper flavor anyway.

    My son hates onions but onion powder is okay. It's the texture of onions, he dislikes. It would be safer to ask your niece and nephew; some people have unpleasant digestive reactions, to certain foods.

    Onion powder will be perfect.

    I use both onion powder and onions. With kids they've had lots of friends who wouldn't eat onions. I grate them and then put them in what ever I'm making and they don't even know it. I also put it in mac and potato salad where it isn't cooked and they don't know.

    I use onion powder. Don't care for green peppers-as I was made to eat them as a kid. I make chili without them, and don't have any complaints.

    i used it all the time when my kids were home. as long as they didn't see onions(or mushrooms-never did find a way to hide those) they were fine.

    My sister uses onion powder in her cooking "experiments".

    She doesn't care for the texture of cook or raw onions. And I ruined tomatoes for her. When we were kids I would grab a tomato and the salt shaker and go sit on the back steps. I ate the tomato like an apple. My sister tried it and the seeds squirted all over her and she thought it was gross.

    But she will eat tomatoes in sauces if its pureed or cooked down quite a bit.

    My husband and I love onions. He likes a nice slice of fresh red onion alongside his pinto beans. I will take nice slices of onion and brown them with a little cooking spray in a frying pan and put it on top of a hamburger patty and a thin slice of melted cheddar. YUMMY!!

    A few of the grand-kids would faint at the sight of a veggie within 5 feet of them....lol
    So I started using a chopper to finely chop veggies for sauces. To this day they had no clue their favorite chili had peppers and onions in it. Or my sauce for lasagna had zucchini and yellow squash in it.

    When we were growing up we ate what was on the table.....veggies and all... Lucky for us Dad didn't like eggplant.
    He did have a rule we were to at least give new foods an honest try. If we didn't like it we didn't have to eat it.
