The #SecretIngredient is a the “homemade” (brand) chili sauce. If you cannot find this chili sauce, DO NOT use any other brand of chili sauce. It’s just not nearly as good with a different brand. Trust me. This chili sauce is a Utah original, but it looks like it’s sold all over the nation now! But I do apologize to all those of you who won’t be able to find this at your grocery store. It can be found on amazon (for a pretty penny 🤑) please comment below and tell me where you live and what store you have found this at, so others can come back and reference it! .

Note: when I demonstrated this on my Instagram stories, I used 1.3 pounds of ground beef, so to accommodate that, I used the entire can of tomato soup. Also, I tried out the Kroger brand of tomato soup (as opposed to Campbell’s) and was pleasantly surprised. The can had no BPA, no corn syrup, and a less preservatives.
