Spicy Chili with Tequila and Whiskey

Oh, and another secret ingredient...but that's for the end!

Dom made this chili a few weeks ago and it was incredible.  He couldn't decide which chili recipe he wanted to use so he mixed them. Then added his favorite liquors!
I'm not even a chili person, but this one was lighter, so flavorful and spicy. I love it!

So, since today is Dom's 23rd birthday (I'm not a cougar anymore!) I figured it would be the perfect time to share it with you all. :)

We wanted to call it Chili Con Dom, but Dom realized when you put it together it become Chili Condom, and that's not good.
So, here you have it!

*NOTE: We made this in the slow cooker the day before so we could really let the flavors blendIf you wanted you could still make it in a normal pot so it takes less time!

  1. This sounds really nice though the idea of whisky in it is a bit strange to me

  2. This sounds so good! We love chili around here but always use the same ingredients. Over the weekend we tried a new recipe and it was awful. We'll have to try this one!

  3. I love whiskey and I love chili...and chocolate! This should be worth a try!

  4. Whaaaa? Chocolate? I'm so intrigued!

  5. Wowww, SO creative!! You lil' domestic divas! Happy Bday to Dom!!

  6. Wow what an interesting mix of ingredients! My boyfriend is allergic to tequila so we'd have to nix that, but the rest of it sounds like it's got good potential!

  7. It looks delish! You're so lucky to have a man that cooks :)


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Your comments make my day! :)
