WHITE BEAN SAUSAGE CHILI — Pork sausage and white beans in a seasoned broth, finished off with both cream and sour cream for a delicious, hearty chili the whole family will love.
Our family recently attended a church potluck, and when I tried this White Bean Sausage Chili, I knew I had to find out who brought it and get their recipe.
Luckily, I was able to track down the person who brought this delicious chili to our church function and she was happy to share her recipe.
Excellent chili! I would give it ten stars! ~ Erma
She says it’s a favorite family recipe, and I can see why. It’s becoming a family favorite at our house too!
And like so many recipes you’ll come across at church potlucks, it’s a simple but flavorful dish that’s budget friendly and easy to prepare. What’s not to love about that?
This chili has a hint of spice from the green chilies and cayenne, and it’s just the perfect amount. I definitely recommend looking for the mild pork sausage.
If not, ground beef is a great substitute. In fact, when I first tried this chili, I thought it was made with ground beef, and I loved it!
I didn’t realize it was ground pork until I got the recipe from my friend. I’m a big fan of spicy sausage, but for this recipe, the mild stuff really does work better.
Sooo good! I kicked up the heat a bit with jalapenos and some hot chili powder. Great for a cool day! So delish! ~ Janet
If you want to lighten things up, you can certainly use light sour cream, and half and half rather than heavy cream. It’s not a super thick chili, so those substitutions will be fine.
I like to finish this off with a sprinkling of fresh parsley or cilantro. And my boys like to stir in a big handful of cheese. However you serve it, this chili is sure to become a favorite in your family too!
