Instead of adding a little sugar to my spaghetti sauce (I like a sweet sauce), I add some ketchup.

I use shredded cabbage on tacos instead of lettuce.

I put diced hard boiled eggs in my tuna salad.

And some pickle relish in my beef chili- its mostly beef, very little sauce.

I like this thread. Good ideas here! I'm stealing the mayonnaise in the mashed potatoes one!

I add a little brown sugar, allspice, ground ginger, and ground cloves to chili. I settled on this combination when I was searching for that something extra to make a good chili into a great chili. I googled and read chili recipes until I found this, tried it and loved the results. The only time it wasn't quite up to par, I had added a little too much brown sugar. Still really good, but now I know to only put about a tablespoon in it.

My super bowl chili has always been a hit. I make it with 2 parts ground turkey and 1 part ground lamb (I don't eat beef). But the secret ingredient everyone ends up loving is the pineapple chunks. I add half along with the onions/garlic/ginger at the very beginning so they get all browned and some dissolve during the rest of cooking and then the other half when adding in my wet ingredients so you can still get nice bites of them in your spoonful.

That sounds really good! I hope I remember your idea.
