“I created a fresh take on chili using lamb and Moroccan seasoning with a feta and almond garnish. It was so exciting and tasty to my husband and son, I made a second batch almost right away. If you like a spicier chili, add harissa paste or use medium salsa instead of mild.” —Arlene Erlbach, Morton Grove, Illinois
In a large nonstick skillet, cook lamb and onion over medium-high heat 6-8 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Transfer lamb mixture to a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker. Add beans.
In a small bowl, combine salsa, 1-1/2 tablespoons Moroccan seasoning and 3 teaspoons lemon zest. Pour over beans and lamb; stir until well combined. Cook, covered, on low for 6 hours or until onions are tender.
In a small bowl, combine marmalade with remaining Moroccan seasoning and lemon zest; stir into slow cooker. Cook, covered, 15 minutes longer. Sprinkle each serving with parsley, cheese and almonds. If desired, serve with additional red onion and naan or pita bread.
