For additional seasoning, combine 1 Tablespoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Slowly add a small portion of the spice combination. Stir, taste, and add more spice until reaching desired flavor. Also, you do have the option of combining all ingredients in a slow cooker and cooking on low for 6 to 8 hours. It will be delicious all the same!
