Calico Chili Recipe

Calico Chili Recipe

I developed this recipe myself when I was 16. It freezes well and almost tastes better the day after you make it. The variety of vegetables make it colorful to serve and give it the calico name.—Camille Gouldsborough, Grosse Isle, Manitoba.

"Fantastic recipe that I make at the beginning of every Fall season. Even though it does contain chili powder, to me it is more like a soup or stew. The zucchini really adds great flavor and it does freeze well. You could add a side of French bread, but the stew itself is very filling."
