When we’re in Colorado in the winter, there’s nothing better than chili! The grandkids come off the slopes after a big day of skiing and snowboarding and are ravenously hungry. It’s always good to have something hot on the stove and sweets and fruit on the kitchen counter. I love it because it all gets eaten, and I can cook more! So, I wanted to create something using whiskey and since I had an opened container of V8 juice in the refrigerator, I decided that would be used instead of crushed tomatoes.
The spices in this cowboy chili are kickin’, like a sneak up on ya hot. Yep, your mouth can be on fire! So if your palate calls for less spice and heat, then just reduce the amounts to your liking. This chili got great reviews from my food seekers. Remember you can add a dollop of sour cream and some shredded cheese and make even more of a meal. And, think about this chili with nachos…oh, yeah! The possibilities are endless! Here’s to heating up your palate. xoxo ~ally
