Bean and Vegetable Chili

Recipe By: Susan Voisin (based on a recipe by Lorna Sass)
Serving Size  : 6     

Here's a delicious, fast chili suitable for the Fuhrman program.  You can omit the corn completely and just use more zucchini if you're trying to cut out grains.  This is thick enough to serve as a filling for burritos.

  • 1 medium  onion -- coarsely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper -- cored, seeded and diced
  • 2  cloves  garlic -- minced
  • 3  cups  pinto beans*, cooked -- (or 2 cans)
  • 2x 14.5 ounce cans  diced tomatoes -- (I used 1 can w/ green chilies, 1 can regular)
  • 2  teaspoons  chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon  cumin
  • 1 1/2  cups  corn -- fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt -- (optional, to taste)
  • 1 1/2 cups  zucchini -- diced (about 2 medium)

In a non-stick pan over medium heat, sauté the onion, bell pepper and garlic just until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.  Add the beans, tomatoes, and seasonings.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes.  Stir in the corn and zucchini and continue to cook until the zucchini is just tender, not mushy, about 7 minutes.

*(Black Beans or kidney beans may also be used.)
