Notes

This recipe is for 10 servings.
15 minutes prior to serving, take 1 cup of soup from the slow cooker and puree it in a blender with the Greek yogurt. Once smooth, stir the mixture back into the slow cooker. This gives the chili its nice consistency.
To lower the carbs in this recipe, reduce the amount of beans or corn used.
This dish can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week or in the freezer for several months. If freezing, I recommend storing in individual containers for convenience.
