I'm not vegetarian but have been trying to cut down on meat consumption; I've found that all the vegetarian chilis I've tried taste like they're lacking something. Not this one. I think it's the zucchini, which I shredded for this recipe, which gives the chili more body...or maybe it's all the different kinds of beans which give it enough depth of flavor. Whatever the secret, THANK YOU Sharon123 for posting this amazing recipe that provides a whole lot of delicious, healthy, comfort food for not a lot of $$$- and easy ingredients that are generally kept on-hand to boot!
