    rpgaymer's Note:

    It has been so freezing lately, so I've been cooking a lot of stews, curries and chilis. I came up with this one to use up some ingredients. I thought it was tasty, warming and a meal in itself.

    1. 1
      In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef, and cook until browned, about 5-8 minutes. Drain off excess fat.
    2. 2
      To the pot, add all other ingredients except for last three (squash/zucchini, cilantro and epazote leaves). Be sure to include the can liquid when adding the black beans- it's yummy.
    3. 3
      Bring mixture to a boil, then decrease heat to very low & simmer uncovered for 2-3 hours. Try to mix the chili every 15-30 minutes, especially near the end of the cooking time. Adjust for seasoning near the end as well.
    4. 4
      Add the squash/zucchini, stir and cook for a further 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked through. When done, remove from heat, then stir in the cilantro and epazote leaves.
    5. 5
      Serve with tortilla chips and top with yummy things like queso fresco, cotija cheese or Mexican crema.

      Great tasting chili - definitely a winner in my book. I love to try different styles of chili and we really enjoyed the addition of the corn and zucchini. I added extra chili powder and I only used the chipotle chili sauce from the can vs. the chili itself. Didn't have the espazote leaves, but I did use cilantro at the end. Served with tortilla strips, Mexican cheese, and sour cream; although I liked it best with just the tortilla strips. Just hope it lasts through the Super Bowl game tonight. Will definitely make this recipe again : ).
