Zippy Vegetarian Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
Hominy and garbanzo beans are interesting additions to this zippy chili recipe that uses canned goods from the cupboard. I often serve it with corn bread or flour tortillas for a speedy meal. At 72 cents a serving, it's economical, too. —Karen Hunt, Bellvue, Colorado

"Love it, It's not often I can find good vegetarian recipes, but this one is great! Thanks so much."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 25, 2011

"The onions could use sauteeing, they were crunchy. I substituted navy beans for the pintos, left out the zucchini and used veg. broth instead of water. I also used Carroll Shelby's chili mix. Ahh - also added garlic powder for more flavor."
