This is one of my most requested ever recipes or dinners. One day I shared with my neighbor and they loved it so much every single time I see them they ask if I'll make it for them. They always want to know my secret ingredient.
I don't have just 1 "secret" ingredient. It's more like several that I started incorporating in based on recipes from family, friends and the food network. I figured if I mixed a dash of this secret and a dash of thatit'd be the great! Luckily... it was. You can adjust seasoning to your own taste, this is just what everyone in my family has come to love.
** Major tip/hint. I have tried MANY brands of premade chili seasoning even once creating my own when I realized I didn't have any on hand... that williams brand is BY FAR... that stands to be repeated. BY FAR the best one to use. ALL others I have tried ended up with a flavor missing, too spicy, not spicy enough, odd color, etc. Williams ALWAYS turns out great for me.
