My favorite time of year is here…football season! And one of my favorite things to make for the big game is a big pot of chili. This is one of my absolute favorites and well worth another share. This chili is a bit smoky, has a little heat, and topped with a cool lime scented sour cream.


Step by step method

  • In a large Dutch oven with a lid, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.

  • Add in the sausage and cook until cooked through and no longer pink, approximately 5 – 7 minutes, being sure to break up the sausage into small pieces as it cooks; drain well.

  • Off of the heat, to the Dutch oven, add in the tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, beer, onion, garlic, jalapeno, poblano, black beans and cooked sausage, stir.

  • Add in the lime juice, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, paprika, coriander, salt, and black pepper; mix to fully combine.

  • Place over medium-high heat; bring to a boil; cover, turn heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

  • Carefully remove approximately 1/4 cup of liquid to a heat-proof bowl; whisk in the cornstarch, add back into pot along with the corn; stir to combine.

  • Continue to cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, place sour cream and 1/2 teaspoon lime zest into a medium bowl; mix to combine; set aside.

  • To serve, ladle chili into serving bowls, top with shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream and a little lime zest on the sour cream.

  • Serve with a lime wedge and lime tortilla chips and remaining sour cream on the side.
