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.

  • 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
