By skipping the standard tomato base, this slow-cooker chili allows the multitude of other flavours to shine through. Cumin, lime, garlic, and chipotle are front and center here, forming a delicious complement to the milder taste of cannellini beans and ground chicken. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
