* For lower sugar, use sugar free sweet chili sauce ( I like G Hughes brand). Or mix regular chili sauce with a few teaspoons of sugar substitute. Taste and adjust as you like. Add additional sugar or sugar substitute to taste.
*Umami seasoning is just that something extra flavoring that is a delicious addition to many recipes. I use Trader Joe's brand but McCormick makes one too. You can add a 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder and 1/4 teaspoon thyme in place of the store bought seasoning.
*Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 days. Or freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost overnight in the fridge. To reheat: Place leftovers on a microwave safe bowl or plate and heat for 2 minutes or until hot. Or reheat in a small skillet over low-medium heat for a few minutes until heated through.
