  • Brown the sausage in a frying pan.
  • In a large pot cook the garlic in the olive oil until it is golden. Then add the broth, spices, tomatoes, tomato juice, and vinegar. Stir well and bring to a boil.
  • When the sausage is browned, place it over some folded paper towels to drain off some of the grease. Add the sausage and the cans of beans (you do not have to drain the beans) to the pot. Let the chili simmer for about half an hour. Lastly add the cream cheese and stir in until completely dissolved.
  • It's especially good served with crackers, tortilla chips, or cornbread.
