Heat oil in large soup pot over medium heat. When hot, saute onions, green bell pepper, and minced jalapeno. Cook for about 10 minutes until tender. Add pinto beans, diced tomatoes, 3/4 cup parsley, water and broth. Reduce heat to low to simmer.
In a separate medium pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add ground beef and sausage. Season with salt and pepper, cooking until browned. Drain most of fat, leaving a little still in meat. Season with chili powder and cumin, stirring to combine.
Transfer cooked beef/sausage to vegetable pot, carefully stirring. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Place chili into soup bowls and top with shredded cheddar cheese, fresh diced tomatoes and sour cream drizzles.
