With a bit of a bite, this super flavorful chili is a perfect all-around gameday treat. We substituted Frank's hot sauce and the juice of one large lime in place of the chile’n lime hot sauce. It turned out great, but we would recommend using the sauce called for in the recipe if your grocery carries it. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
