Chili. Made better with Strong Sauce
We all love chili. It is the ultimate comfort food. Whether we enjoy it on its own or as a topping for dogs, burgers or nachos, it is a food that just can’t be beat. We celebrate chili with countless competitions held each year in its honor. Chili has an infinite number of recipes, and now it has one more. The ever versatile, time saving Strong Sauce makes a quick and easy chili recipe. Perfect for when you want some of this classic dish but don’t have a day to make it. Ours takes about 30 to 40 minutes.
- One medium to large yellow onion. Fine dice.
- Four to five assorted green chili peppers. Fine dice. You can vary the types by what’s available and the amount of heat you want. We used 2 Italian fry peppers, one poblano, one jalapeno and one habanero.

- Add the diced onion and pepper and sauté for 15 to 20 minutes until the vegetables are soft.
- Add the garlic and cumin and cook for 5 minutes more.
- Add the tequila and simmer until almost evaporated.
