Chef Darlene's Recipe for Chicken Veggie Chili

Chicken Veggie Chili
Recipe by Chef Darlene

This is a Hearty Veggie Chili! Especially, if you had an abundant of vegetables from the summer garden. I would suggest grilling the fresh corn, cutting kernel off the cob (Brings out corn's natural sweetness along with a smoke flavor). If you grill the corn, then I would suggest cutting back on the ground cumin. Great to serve over brown rice and garnish with cilantro leaves, sliced avocado, chopped green onion and top with sour cream or plain yogurt. "Now get busy making your own creation."

  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil or Canola Oil
  • 1 large Onion, chopped
  • 1 cup Green or Red Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Jalapenos, seeded and chopped

  • 2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cumin

  • 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.

Add onions and saut (I like to caramelize the onions, just enough to bring out the sweetness of the onions)

add garlic and bell pepper continue sauting until tender.

Add zucchini, yellow squash and corn stirring until soft about 5 minutes.

Add chili powder, cumin, and salt/pepper and cook, stirring until you can smell the wonderful fragrant from all the aromatics (veggies and spices)

Add tomatoes and chopped jalapenos, stir well.

Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 25 to 30 minutes.
