Obviously I love cooking, or I wouldn’t be writing a blog about it. But sometimes, I don’t have a ton of time for it. Sometimes I have to work late, or my kids are sick, or my kids are being terrible, or I just don’t feel like it. Those are the days I love my slow cooker the most. And I actually use my Instant Pot on slow cooker mode, so it’s yet another reason I love my Instant Pot.

I can’t tell you the number of times we’ve had some variation of taco slow cooker chicken chili. It’s easy to make, and pretty darn tasty. But, I’ve gotten kinda sick of the taco seasoning flavor. I’m pretty sure we had it eighteen thousand times last winter. Last week I wanted a slow cooker chicken chili, but wanted it to be a little different than the usual taco seasoning taste.

I went to the grocery store without an exact plan. I bought some canned tomatoes, frozen peppers and onions, and frozen corn since those are given ingredients for chili in my book. But when it came to seasonings, I needed some inspiration. In the spice pack row I found McCormick Grill Mates Mojito Lime Marinade. That sounded like it would be good in a chili, so I bought it and gave it a try. It was a success!

For the photos, I used Greek yogurt on the top. After I took a few photos, I stirred it into my chili with some lime juice. I didn’t know what to expect, but it worked beautifully. The Greek yogurt turned it in into a creamy chili without using cheese. That may be my new chili obsession.

This hint of Lime CrockPot Chicken Chili is quick and easy to put together, freezes well, and has a delicious lime taste! Plus, it feeds a crowd, so it’s perfect for a party or family dinner for two nights!
