The perfect chili to eat while celebrating the great beer fest that is Oktoberfest.

Today's Sunday Supper event is all about OKTOBERFEST and hosted by Cricket of Cricket's Confections. I actually have a few German recipes in my post queue, but decided to go the non-German heavy route and post this recipe for a twist on the classic family favorite of chicken chili. There are 3 different Schnitzel recipes coming at some point and some Apfelkuchen (apple cake)...and I have decided upon a German recipe for my Secret Recipe Club post this month too. But for now, I cannot reveal what that is.

I've only recently started eating German cuisine [and learning the German language] and definitely love it so far. My brother-in-law is newly married to a German girl and she has integrated into our big loud family so quickly and we adore her. She's been sharing lots of her favorite foods with us, so I'm excited to check out the recipes that are on the list at the end of this post from my fellow Sunday Supper movement pals - they certainly look more authentic than my post for today.

This chicken chili has classic flavors that I love plus the addition of cinnamon that reminds me so very much of Cincinnati Chili (which is Greek based). But the Oktoberfest beer really makes the whole dish. Nick adores Oktoberfest beer and we end up getting nearly every brand out there of it. Once when he was deployed through the fall and wasn't going to be home, I bought so much Sam Adams Oktoberfest beer and stored it in our basement for his return. LOL. I hope that even though it's no where near traditional German cuisine that y'all try this yummy dish out. It's the perfect autumn dinner!

What you need:
  • Olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 5 jalapenos, seeded and diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bottle (12 oz) Oktoberfest beer - Yuengling, Sam Adams, Leinenkugel, etc. 
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 tsp. chicken bouillion granules
  • 2 cans (15.5 oz) Great Northern beans
  • 1 can (15.25 oz) corn
  • 1 can (10 oz) Rotel
  • 1 can (4 oz) diced green chillies
  • 1 lb. chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  1. Heat a Tbsp. or so of olive oil in a stockpot over medium to medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion and jalapenos and cook until tender. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  3. Add beer and simmer over medium for about 5 minutes. Then add water and bouillion.
  4. Add beans, corn, Rotel, green chillies, and chicken
  5. Then mix in the spices and simmer for another 20 minutes.
  6. Before serving, stir in heavy cream, sour cream, and cream cheese until it is melted into the chili.
  7. Serve topped with Mexican blend or cheddar cheese and tortilla chips, if desired.
