Cutty Sark Kick Off Chili

Cutty Sark Kick Off Chili

5 from 3 reviews

This is a spin on a recipe I once developed for Cutty Sark, as part of a Super Bowl campaign. The complex layering and depth of flavor which result from adding scotch to this dish have made it my go-to recipe when making a hearty winter chili.
