Crockpot Chunky Veggie Chili

Here is the original recipe (not sure where I got it from). I have made some revisions to the original and I must say this is AMAZING!!! I have made it more than once : )

  • 1 med. zucchini, cut into 1/2" pieces (1-1/2 c)
  • 1 med. green pepper, coarsely chopped (1 c)
  • 1/2 c coarsely chopped onion
  • 1/2 c coarsely chopped celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 t chili powder
  • 1 t dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/2 t ground cumin
  • 2 14-1/2 oz cans Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
  • 1 17 oz can whole kernel corn
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 8 oz jar salsa
Put the zucchini, pepper, onion, celery, garlic, spices in crockpot. Stir in undrained tomatoes, corn, and drained beans, and salsa. Cook low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours. Ladle into bowls and top with a dollop of ff sour cream.

I made this into 8 servings at 3 points each. I did add an extra zucchini, used regular stewed tomatoes (not Mexican), and added 2 pouches of Boca crumbles the last hour of cooking (which did add .5pts to each serving).
