Wash and dry all produce. Trim, then thinly slice scallions, keeping greens and whites separate. Mince garlic. Core and seed poblanos, then cut into ½-inch squares. Drain and rinse beans.
Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large, tall-sided pan over medium-high heat. Add beef, breaking up meat into pieces. Cook, tossing occasionally, until browned at the edges and no longer pink, 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Remove pan from heat and carefully pour out and discard any excess grease left by beef. Return to medium-high heat and add scallion whites, poblanos, and garlic. Cook, tossing, until lightly browned and softened, 5-6 minutes.
Add Mexican spice to pan and toss to coat veggies. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper.
Add stock concentrates, beans, tomatoes, beef, and 2 cups water to pan and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and let simmer until thick and stew-like, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide chili between bowls. Sprinkle with cheddar and scallion greens. Dollop with sour cream and serve.
