Crockpot Black Bean Chili with Lime and Cilantro

The recipe for Crockpot Black Bean Chili with Lime and Cilantro was definitely a spin-off of the black bean chili right below it, but besides being made in the crockpot, this one is a bit less spicy, and has fewer ingredients. There’s still a generous amount of lime and cilantro though, two of the things I really like in chili.

Beef Chili with Sausage, Mushrooms, and Olives

Beef Chili with Sausage, Mushrooms, and Olives is a low-carb version of a chili with red and black beans that I made for years for the Denny Family Super Bowl party. The new version is delicious without beans, or follow the link in the post and make the original recipe.

  4. Oh… too bad I did not find your chili recipe in time for the Super Bowl… we had Super Bowl Falafel Nibblers and Buffalo Wings tonight(momgateway.blogspot.com). But, chili is great anytime so can’t wait to get the ingredients for your black bean chili with lime, cilantro and salsa.

  5. I love chili! 🙂

  12. This is great, Kalyn!! I just can’t stop making chili lately, either!

    I recently blogged about my new favorite chili recipe using Rancho Gordo Pinquitos here, should you be interested. Steve Sando of Rancho Gordo actually sent me an email complimenting on the recipe, so I am through the roof, of course. I am not sure if it is South Beach Diet friendly, but I am completely addicted to it.

    Salsa fixings on top are key!!

    Cheers,

  13. What a wonderful recipe – We are big chili fans in this house as those one pot wonders are terrific!!

  14. John, I had to take out the link from your comment. I can’t allow people to leave links recommending products like that because if I do my blog will be over-run with companies leaving links “advertising” their products.

  15. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds terrific!

    John

  16. I totally agree with u…infact chillies and my life are inseparable..lol

    Am so glad I stumbled here. You have a great place and would absolutely love to entertain you at my lil place sometime. 🙂

  17. I posted my Super Bowl recipes and clicked on yours within moments. I took a different tack, but I’m sure if we were at the same SB party, we’d both be in the kitchen talking about the food, instead of watching the game. You’ll see when you read mine. LOL

  18. your chili colors are so bright! 🙂
