Veggie chili

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes

Veggie chili

1 medium onion, finely diced
1 clove (or 1 teaspoon) minced garlic
6 ounces (1/2 package) meatless ground beef crumbles
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 small zucchini (approximately 7 inches long), diced
1 can (8 ounces) no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (27 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 envelope (1.75 ounces) chili seasoning mix

Combine all ingredients in a large pot and stir to mix well. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes; stir frequently to prevent sticking. Leftovers reheat well or may be frozen.
