Featured Recipe: Bourbon Chili with Basil Hayden’s 


1¼ pounds ground beef chuck
1 cup Basil Hayden’s® bourbon
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried sage
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 bell peppers (red, green and orange), chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, chopped
¼ cup orange juice
½ stick unsalted butter (preferably Irish, such as Kerrygold)
1 tablespoon chili powder
½ teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¾ teaspoon salt
1 can crushed tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 can garbanzo beans
¼ cup sour cream
3 fresh mint leaves, minced
4 ounces cheddar cheese
tortilla chips

In a large pot over medium heat, add beef, 1/4 cup bourbon, 2 cloves of garlic, oregano and sage. Cook, breaking up beef with a wooden spoon, until meat is browned, 6 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef mixture to a medium bowl and set aside; discard remaining juices.

In the same pot over high heat, heat olive oil. Add onion, bell peppers, jalapeño, orange juice, butter and remaining garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Add chili powder, chipotle, cayenne and salt, and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Add remaining bourbon, reduce heat to medium and cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 8 minutes.

Add tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Add beans and reserved beef. (If mixture is dry, add up to 1 cup water.) Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for 1 hour. Before serving, stir together sour cream and mint in a small bowl. Divide chili among bowls and garnish each with about 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese and 2 teaspoons mint sour cream. Serve with tortilla chips.
