Garden Chili

Wonderful garden vegetables in the pot with some great spices and we have a garden to table treat for anytime of the year. This recipe started one rainy summer morning after I gathered the vegetables from the garden. As I began to clean the vegetables I had the thought that a nice garden chili would be delicious with all these fresh vegetables. As the chili began to simmer later in the morning, I knew that this would be a great pot of chili and so it is, we loved it and will be making this recipe the year round.

Ingredients
2 onions, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 cups cherry tomatoes, whole
3 cups Zucchini, chopped
2 cups whole kernel corn
2 cups black beans, drained
2 cups pinto beans, drained
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped fine
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
1-1/2 cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
4 cups vegetable broth
2 limes for lime juice
Directions
In a large soup pot, heat the vegetable oil and saute the onions, bell peppers, and garlic. 
Add the tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes begin to break up.  
Add the Zucchini stir and mix well cook for about 5 to 6 minutes until the Zucchini begins to soften.  
Add the corn and beans, mix well.
Stir in all the spices making sure the spices are mixed well with all the vegetables.
Stir in the tomato paste with the vegetable mix until completely mixed.
Stir in the vegetable broth.
If you want the chili to be thicker use more tomato paste and less vegetable broth.
Cook the chili on medium heat for 20 minutes, until all the vegetables are tender.
Cover and simmer until ready to serve.
Right before serving squeeze lime juice over each serving.
Like any other chili the longer it sits, the better it gets. It is always better the next day.
Enjoy!
