How to Make Spicy Southwestern Black Bean Chili w/Lime Scented Sour Cream

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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 and 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 corn starch, add back into the pot along with the corn; stir to combine. Continue to cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place sour cream and 1/2 teaspoon lime zest into a medium bowl; mix to combine. Set aside.
  4. 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.
