Southwestern Black Bean Chili

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is a different twist on chili. Corn, black beans, jalapenos, taco seasoning, sour cream and green onions give this recipe a taste of the Southwest. It's great with crushed tortilla chips or chili cheese corn chips sprinkled on top.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, add ground chuck and onions. Brown meat and drain.
  2. Add taco seasoning and stir.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add drained corn, undrained black beans, tomato soup, water, and jalapenos; stir. Cook until hot.
  4. Add 1/2 cup sour cream and 4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese. Mix well.
  5. When cheese is melted, pour into individual bowls and garnish with additional cheese, sour cream, green onions and tortilla chips or chili cheese corn chips if desired.

I subbed diced tomatoes and a couple of tablespoons for the tomato soup. I just can't see tomato soup in a chili recipe. It was pretty good. The addition of corn was different. Thanks for posting.
