Chris' Outlaw Chili

This is wicked good!  Chris' own creation years ago...still a fall favorite!

drizzle olive oil
1 Tbsp garlic
1 lb Sirloin Tip Steak (any cut will do, really)
1 cup Bourbon Whiskey
2 jalapeno peppers, diced
2 habanero peppers, diced
2 green bell peppers, diced
2 red bell peppers, diced
31 oz dark red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
15 oz great white northern beans (drained and rinsed)
30 oz diced tomatoes (or crushed tomatoes)
15 oz diced tomatoes (or canned whole tomatoes, cut up)
salt to taste

1.  Lightly brown the garlic in olive oil.
2.  Cut steak into strips, and add to the sauted garlic.
3.  Once steak is browned, add whiskey.  Cook over high until most of the alcohol is cooked off.
4.  Add water and cook for 30 minutes. 
5.  Add salt, and all the peppers.  Cook for 30 more minutes.
6.  Add remaining ingredients and cook until warm.

Serve with grated cheddar cheese and sour cream (and/or avocado)

Note: Peppers are for flavor AND heat, so pick peppers that you like, even plain green ones.  If you like the flavor of the hotter peppers but you don't want the heat, just remove the seeds and membranes before dicing!
