To make the sausage

In a large bowl, mix together pork, turkey, garlic, red wine, vinegar, paprika, ancho chili powder, cumin, oregano, coriander, pepper and salt until combined. Cover and set in the refrigerator overnight.

To make the chili

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage mixture and cook until browned, stirring to crumble - about 7 - 10 minutes. Stir in onions, cumin, garlic, oregano and chipotle chiles - cook until the onions are tender, about 4-6 minutes.

In a food processor, add 1 1/2 cups black beans and 1 cup broth - process until smooth. Add the processed beans, whole beans, remaining 2 cups broth, tomatoes and water into the saucepan - bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until the chili becomes slightly thick - about 45 minutes. Stir in lime juice and cilantro.

Makes about 6 hearty servings.
