- In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and caramelize onions by constantly mixing until browned and soft, about 6 minutes. Don’t be afraid to get some color on the onions and the bottom of the pan. Turn heat down and add garlic, stirring for 1 minute. Add chili powder and cumin and continue to stir for another minute.
- Add diced tomatoes, beans, corn salsa, tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, and salt. Mix to incorporate, and let cook for another minute before pouring into the crock pot.
- Slow cook the chili in a 5 qt. crockpot on high for 2-6 hours. Taste and add lime, starting 1 half at a time until desired taste is reached.
- Serve and garnish however you like!
