Santa Fe Corn Chili is more like Cowboy Chili than the chile we are used to in New Mexico, but its still good!


  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (15-1/2 ounces) red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) sweet corn, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, undrained
  • 1 package (1-1/4 ounces) chili seasoning mix
  • 3/4 cup dairy sour cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon green hot pepper sauce


1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef and garlic; cook 6 minutes, breaking into small crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings.

2. Stir in beans, corn, tomato sauce, tomatoes and chili seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Meanwhile combine sour cream and pepper sauce in small bowl. Serve with chili.

Test Kitchen Tips: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
