Crockpot Lime Chicken Chili

We’ve been lucky this winter; we haven’t seen a lot of snow, not like last year anyway, but the cold is another story. Most of the winter has been bitter cold, and by bitter I mean -30 degrees Celsius. I’m more than ready for spring. Unfortunately we just experienced a few days of blizzards and are back in the middle of a full on winter; the joys. Today I felt like a cozy hug of comfort food and this Crockpot Lime Chicken Chili lit the fire.





I normally make chili with beef but I wanted something different. This Crockpot Lime Chicken Chili was easy and had the right amount of spice; Hubby and the kids loved the new chili makeover.
