Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook until browned, stirring occasionally. Remove from saucepan; set aside and keep warm. Reduce heat to medium.
Add 1/4 cup vegetable broth to sauce pan, stirring to loosen brown bits from bottom of pan. Add onion, garlic, salt, cumin and black pepper; cook 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally.
Add jalapeno and red bell pepper; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Return pork to saucepan; stir in undrained tomatoes, beans and tomatillos. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, stir together remaining 3/4 cup vegetable broth with cornstarch. Stir in broth mixture to saucepan; cook 5 to 7 minutes more or until chili has thickened, stirring occasionally. Top each serving with chopped cilantro and sour cream, if desired.
To blend tomatillos, place in blender or food processor; pulse until smooth.
For extra heat, add more chopped jalapeno or try a spicier pepper, such as a habanero.
