Spicy Two-Bean Chili

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by Juenessa

This recipe comes from Country Woman Magazine. Lime juice and black beans gives a usually traditional dish an un-traditional twist! Try the chili served over rice for a satisfying meal.

I love trying different chili recipes and the lime juice and sage combo really added a nice complex flavor. I used fresh sage (about 1 tsp.), since I thought crock pot cooking intensifies fresh herbs. Thanks Juenessa, for an especially good chili! Roxygirl
