I created this in late August when my vegetable garden was in it's prime, with fresh tomato sauce and zucchini and corn... I'm not really too big on ground beef, so I made this chili with chicken, and it is hands down my favourite chili. My whole family, including the picky ones, loved it. I left out any hot ingredients like cayenne or hot sauce, because that is entirely up to you folks. Tastes great with a nice piece of cornbread alongside too!
