This is Spouse’s twist on her standard chili recipe to take advantage of the sweet corn season. Of course, with summer  tomatoes and peppers also plentiful, it’s the perfect time to try this comfort food chili.

I’ve used Italian sausage here with the casings removed, but of course you can buy loose sausage meat and treat it like ground beef in the recipe.

Garlic Sausages are a good substitute for Italian sausages but you can use any kind you like.

You can even try using a low fat sausage like turkey or chicken sausage to make this an even healthier dinner choice.

I have pictured it here with some tortilla chips and garnishes of cheddar, sour cream and lime guacamole. I think this one makes great dip for tortilla chips too.

Tortilla chips are great for scooping up the chili.

I might serve it that way at our next get together with friends for “sips and nibbles”.
