I am looking for a word that means "made more complicated/complex" but not as simple as "complexified", which I don't think is a very popular word.

Example usage:

The inclusion of Shichimi togarashi, a Japanese spice, "complexified" the already intricate mixture of ingredients.

    Within your context, enriched or deepened would be good choices. In general, complexity is good in food, but complicated means 'made things more complicated than necessary' (and thus, bad). – Yosef Baskin Feb 21 at 21:58
