  • Summary

    This recipe is really flexible. You can use whatever veggies you have in the fridge, and serve it with your favourite toppings. My kids love it with lots of sour cream, chopped avocado and grated cheddar. I expect that you could make this in the slow cooker, although you would have to reduce the liquid quite a bit. It doesn't take much time on the stove, so I prefer to do it that way. You can absolutely make this in advance, and I highly recommend that in fact, because it tastes even better on day 2 and 3. It freezes well, too.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons cooking oil (I use avocado oil, but any veg oil will work)
    • 1 large onion, minced
    • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 4-6 cups chopped vegetables (e.g. carrots, celery, zucchini, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, peppers)
    • 3 tablespoons chili powder (the Mexican mixed stuff, not ground chilis)
    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 1 large (28 oz / 796 mL) can crushed tomatoes
    • 3 cups "booster liquid" (see note below)
    • 2 small (14 oz / 398 mL) cans beans (e.g. black beans, chick peas, kidney beans or pinto beans), drained and rinsed
    • 1 cup frozen corn (optional)
    • 1 can sliced black olives, drained and rinsed (optional)
