Street Corn Chicken Chili is a mix between a white chicken chili recipe and Mexican street corn, delicious flavors for a perfect one pot dish!

My foodie mind always combines two separate dishes and makes them become one.

This chili recipe was no exception and was the perfect Sunday football meal, even though our team lost (boo 🙁 ).

How to make Street Corn Chicken Chili

First set a large soup pot over medium heat.

Then add some olive oil, a diced onion, and a few diced jalapeno peppers.

Also some fresh corn cut from the cob, this was from 8 ears of corn.

Season with kosher salt and pepper and cook for 7 to 9 minutes.

Then add 2 pounds of ground chicken, lots of fresh minced garlic, and your basic chili seasonings.

I added 3 tablespoons chili powder, 2 tablespoons paprika, and a tablespoon of cumin along with more kosher salt and pepper.

Cook this for 7 to 9 minutes, breaking apart the chicken as it cooks.

Next pour in 4 cups of chicken broth, a tablespoon of chicken base, and 3/4 cup of your favorite beer.

The beer is optional, so no worries if you don’t have any on hand.

Bring this to a boil and reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for about half an hour.

Finally add in a cup of sour cream, a cup of chopped cilantro, a few dashes of hot sauce, and some fresh lime juice.

And simmer for a few more minutes.

I always taste for seasoning, just add more kosher salt, pepper, or chili powder if needed.
