2 tablespoons canola
1green bell pepper, coarsest chopped
1 carrot, coarsely shredded
1small zucchini, coarsely shredded
1 rib celery, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 18 oz. can tomatoes, with juice
1 15 oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder (more if you want it spicier)
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste

Heat the oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, carrot, zucchini, celery, onion, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, for about three minutes or until crisp-tender. Add remaining ingredients. When the liquid comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes or until the chili is heated through. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Serve with corn, scallions, shredded Montrey Jack or cheddar cheese as garnishes.

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking. I love Italian food--but I make all kinds/types of recipes--whatever appeals to me this week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cookies, fudge and cheese spread at Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
one tragedy happened in 8th grade home-ec--obviously, it traumatized me! Mrs. D'Amato had us making french toast--simple enough, eh? Well, there were five of us in the group. I had table setting duty that week. We were all supposed to help the main cook--Becky T. Well, we were more interested in talking than watching what we were doing. Someone handed Becky the sugar and she put all of it into the eggs and milk. We couldn't understand why our "batter" was so think--until we realized that the recipe called for 2 T sugar--not the two cups Beck was handed! We had "wonderful" carmelized french toast--or at least, we told Mrs. D'Amato how terrific it was--as we choked down the super sweet breakfast!
