Crockpot cooking is one of my favorite things! I love being able to set the crockpot or the Instant Pot and go spend time doing fun things with my family. Another thing I love about making recipes with the slow cooker is that I can have a fresh, home cooked meal on the table with very little effort. I can make meals that suit our dietary needs and feel good about making food that I feel safe feeding my family! Crockpot recipes are great for busy weeknights and after school too.

The addition of fresh roasted peppers and lime zest gives it a little extra zing. Serve this chili with an upscale toppings bar of goat cheese, avocado, fresh cilantro and lime wedges for a new take on a traditional meal or pour it over fresh biscuits for a deconstructed take on pot pie.

The best part is, it all cooks in the crockpot but tastes like you spent all day cooking!
