Enjoyed this chili and loved the corn and zucchini! I had ground round in the freezer so used it in place of the ground chuck. Black beans arent our favorite, in place of them I used kidney beans. I did add a little more tomato sauce and omitted the teaspoon of salt. Nice meal and the leftovers are even better! Thank you southern chef in louisiana for creating this chili recipe.
