This might be considered a Chili, but the balance is very high in favor of vegetables, and the dish could be made without any meat at all. I normally grind stew meat in a food processor to reduce it to about a grind twice as big as hamburger grains. This recipe can also be made in a crockpot over low heat for 3 to 4 hours.
