This recipe is a star because it has the chili sauce for flavor but has the added smoke flavoring. The smoke flavoring makes it so that this recipe is truly unique. Smoke flavoring is an ingredient that we like to use in a lot of things, from soups to casseroles. It gives a bit of a chargrilled taste without having to use the grill, so it’s perfect in any season.
