An easy and flavorful slow cooker beef chili with a zesty lime crema for serving. This delicious recipe was originally created for the Muir Glen Chili Roundup by Liz DellaCroce | The Lemon Bowl.

Preparation & Directions

  1. Pre-heat a skillet to medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add ground sirloin, salt and pepper to pan and break down the beef into bite-sized pieces using a wooden spoon. Cook until nicely browned, 8-10 minutes. Remove from pan and place in the bottom of a slow cooker.

  2. Add all remaining ingredients with the exception of the Lime Crema to the slow cooker (onion through beer).
    Cook on High for 4 Hours or Low for 8 Hours.
  3. While the chili is cooking, make the Lime Crema (recipe below) by combining all ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve the chili.

Serve with a dollop of Lime Crema, cilantro and scallions.
