One of my favorite recipes, when the weather is cooler is our Vegetarian Chili.  I don’t go bean crazy for obvious reasons but I do add a lot of fresh veggies and a healthy amount of spice. This recipe warms the tummy on those chilly fall nights.

In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion, bell pepper, carrots, celery, and,  then cook for about 15minutes, occasionally stirring, until starting to soften.( I like to brown my veggies a little)  Add the Mexican oregano, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Cook for another 5 minutes.

Pour in the broth and tomato sauce. Stir, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the beans and zucchini, stir, then cover and simmer for 30 more minutes.

Mix the masa with the warm water, and beer dissolving the Masa. Then stir it into the pot. Simmer for 10 more minutes.  Toppings are optional:)
