READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Cindy Rose

Clipped recipe from newspaper in 2007. Family favorite. I've used 1 lb of ground turkey or ground beef instead of the zucchini.

A great chili without the meat but more like a soup. I used a combo of beef and chicken broth and canned corn kernels. Would definitely make again as a soup with the smoky chipotle subtle flavor!! Just a note to say we did combine this with leftover 435765 to make it a meat version and added more cumin and chipotle in adobe sauce.

  2. Add broth, corn, beans, tomatoes and tomato paste. Heat to boil, reduce heat; simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Simmer, uncovered, to reduce slightly, about 15 minutes.
