Ingredients

  • 2 medium unpeeled white or red potatoes (about 10 oz), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 small bell pepper (any color), chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained, rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ kidney beans, drained, rinsed
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz each) Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (8 oz) Muir Glen™ organic tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices

Steps

    In 4-quart Dutch oven, place all ingredients except zucchini; stir well. Heat to boiling over high heat, stirring occasionally; reduce heat. Cover; simmer 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Stir in zucchini. Cover; cook 5 to 7 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes and zucchini are tender when pierced with fork.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    No garbanzo or kidney beans in your cupboard? You can use canned black, great northern, pinto or butter beans for one or both beans in this chili.
  • tip 2
    You may notice that zucchini comes in many sizes. Choose a zucchini about 8 inches long because it will be younger and more tender than the bigger ones.
  • tip 3
    Got a family of meat lovers? Customize this dish by adding your favorite ground meat. Ground beef, chorizo sausage or ground turkey are some great options for adding additional flavor and protein.
  • tip 4
    Like your chili extra spicy or deeply savory? Try adding crushed red pepper or garlic powder for an extra boost!
