Spaghetti sauce gives an Italian twist to this chunky chili, which my husband can't get enough of. I always reach for this recipe when my zucchini crop is booming.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 4 cups chopped zucchini
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) spaghetti sauce with mushrooms
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Directions

In a large saucepan, cook beef and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Yield: 12 servings (3 quarts).
Look for brightly colored zucchini that has few blemishes. In general, the smaller the squash, the more tender it will be. Store zucchini in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Two pounds yields about 4-1/2 cups chopped zucchini.
