How To Make

STEP 1: In a large bowl, mix together flour, chili powder, cumin and Schultz’s Seasoning & Rub. Toss brisket cubes in spice mixture until brisket is covered and evenly coated

STEP 2: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the brisket cubes, and cook, stirring often, until browned on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Be sure you don’t crowd the skillet. If you need, brown brisket cubes in batches. Transfer brisket cubes to a 6-quart slow cooker.

STEP 3: Add beans, corn, tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, garlic and beef broth to slow cooker. Stir well. Cover and cook on LOW until beef is tender, about 8 hours. 

STEP 4: Uncover and cook until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir in 1tbsp lime juice. 

STEP 5: While chili cooks uncovered, make the cilantro lime crema: In a small bowl, combine Schultz's Gourmet Green Chili Lime Cooking Sauce, lime juice, sour cream, lime zest (to taste), cilantro (to taste) and salt & pepper (to taste)

STEP 6: Serve immediately, top with shredded cheese, jalapeños and Crema.
