Tips & Notes

  • Spices- option to use 3-4 tablespoons homemade chili seasoning.
  • Store in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • This is an excellent freezer meal! Let cool completely and then transfer into a freezer-safe gallon-size bag and place into the freezer. Will stay for up to 3 months.
  • If you like a little bit more heat, feel free to swap hot sauce for the apple cider vinegar.
