Steps

  1. Chop jalapeño and Hungarian wax peppers finely, discarding seeds and membranes. Chop tomatoes and cilantro. Zest lime (1/4 teaspoon), then juice (1 tablespoon). Chop bacon and remove casings from chorizo (wash hands).
  2. Preheat large stockpot on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place bacon in pot; cook and stir 4–5 minutes until crispy. Remove bacon and place on paper towel-lined plate; drain pot, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings.
  3. Return pot to heat. Add chorizo, all peppers, and onions; cook 3–4 minutes until browned. Add tomatoes and garlic; cook 5 minutes or until tomatoes begin to break down.
  4. Drain and rinse black beans. Add black beans, chili beans, tomato sauce, water, shredded pork, bacon, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, lime juice, and 2 tablespoons cilantro; mix thoroughly. Bring chili to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 20 minutes.
  5. Combine sour cream, remaining 1/3 cup cilantro, and lime zest. Serve chili with sour cream mixture, cheese, and tortilla chips.
