    Thanks Roosie for another fine vegetarian chili. Had to make one change when I realiized I was out of black beans. Since the veggies were already simmering, I went with 1 can cannelini, 1 dark kidney and 1 pink kidney. The chili was really nice and had a nice natural sweetness coming from the peppers. The addition of the fresh cilantro also infused the pot with this great aroma and taste. In preparing this again, and I will, I'd make 2 small changes and write these for others. First, keep the diced peppers some what large so that the don't melt into the sauce. I would also consider reducing the amount of zucchini as it seemed to overwhelm the peppers.
