Instructions
  1. Heat a large soup pot over medium high heat. Add the bacon and cook until it renders some fat and is just beginning to brown. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels.
  2. Add the chicken and turkey sausage to the pot and cook until they are cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside. Leave the drippings in the pan.
  3. Add the onions, garlic, cumin, coriander, and jalapeno to the pot and cook until the onions soften and everything smells wonderful.
  4. Add the tomato paste and stir to blend it in. Cook for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the chili sauce and stock along with the chili powders and oregano. Stir in the green and poblano chilis. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes to blend the flavors.
  6. Add the rinsed and drained beans to the pot and let everything simmer another 15 minutes.
  7. Increase the heat to a low boil. Shake the masa harina with a half cup of water in a jar until it is well blended. Stir the mixture into the chili and continue to stir until it thickens.
  8. Give it a taste and adjust the ingredients as needed. Serve.

Instructions
  1. If you are using the chicken sausages, grill or broil them until they are nicely browned. When cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise then slice. Set aside.
  2. Heat a soup pot over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onions, garlic, jalapenos, cumin, and carrots and cook until the veggies begin to soften, 5 minutes or so.
  3. Add the corn, sausage (if using), and sun dried tomatoes and cook for a minute or two. Add the stock. Bring to a boil, add the oregano, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Add the rinsed and drained beans and the lime juice and simmer for 5 - 7 minutes. Ladle into soup bowls. Serve with a lime wedge if you'd like.
