Ingredients

    Olive oil
    Carrots
    Onions
    Celery
    Zucchini
    Medium bell peppers
    Red kidney beans
    Black beans
    Pinto beans
    Trader Joe's Garden Veggie Patch Soup
    Vegetable broth
    Chili powder
    Ground cumin seed
    Unsweetened cocoa powder

Directions

The key here is to work in steps and go slow in your boiling. Make a mirepoix with your carrots/celery/onions and olive oil, then add the tomatoes (liquid included). Bring this to a gentle boil, then add the broth and the soup. Boil THAT, then add the zucchini and peppers and seasonings. Reduce to a simmer -- not the very lowest setting, but in the low numbers, so there's a consistent "rippling" happening in your soup. THEN add the beans. The reason for not adding them earlier is because you don't want to boil your beans - canned beans are already soft, and you don't want them turning to mush. Chili is ready when there's a 2.5-3" strip of dried chili substance around the top of your pot. This will take the better part of 2 hours, so plan ahead and be patient. It will be worth it -- the flavors will be intense, and your broth will be thick but not too thick. Enjoy!
