Recipes Tips

If you want to make the chili more flavorful, you can add some diced bacon or sausage to the pot. It’ll give the dish an extra boost of umami. Also, if you prefer a thicker consistency, you can add a tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with water to the pot in the last 10 minutes of cooking. This will thicken the sauce without altering the flavor.

Another tip is to use freshly ground spices instead of pre-packaged ones. It’ll make a huge difference in the flavor of the dish. Lastly, don’t be afraid to adjust the seasoning to your taste. Everyone’s palate is different, so feel free to experiment and make the recipe your own.
