How to make this super flavorful Whiskey, Maple, Pork and Chorizo Chili.
My rustic cornbread recipe will go great with this chili.  I will leave the link below.  This is a no bean meat chili with bold rich flavor.  It is not as thick as a traditional chili but you can thicken it up or use corn bread like I did to soak up some of this wonderful liquid.
