  • 1 tablespoon dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning Salt
  • 1 1/2-2 teaspoons Red Chili Flakes
  • 3 tablespoons Flour
  • 6 ounces mild Lager Beer
  • 2 15- ounce cans Cannellini Beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 2 Jalapenos (finely chopped and muddled with salt)
  • 2 cups fresh Corn Kernels (cut from the cob)
  • 4-5 cups Homemade Chicken Stock

step-by-step directions
  • In a Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground chicken and sausage and season with salt. Cook until the edges of the chicken are brown and meat begins to caramelize, about 7 to 8 minutes. 
  • Add the onions and bell peppers along with another pinch of salt and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. 
  • Add the dried spices and cook until very fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes, and add the flour and stir for 30 seconds. Deglaze with the lager, scraping up brown bits form the bottom of the pot and cook until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the beans, jalapenos, corn, and most of the chicken stock, reserving 1 cup of stock. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer, and stir frequently. Cook over medium low heat for about an hour.
  • Add the spinach, Parmesan, parsley, and roasted poblanos. Add a little more of the reserved chicken stock if needed to thin. Cook for another 10 minutes, taste/adjust seasonings. Garnish bowls of chili with sour cream and scallions and serve with cornbread.
