Veggie Loaded Chili

Nothing is better than a big pot of chili with some fresh peppers and onions in it, in my opinion. This recipe is loaded with so many veggies, you could even forego the meat and make it a vegetarian chili. Those fresh veggies make it small and taste magnificent. Here's everything that went into this veggie-filled version.

1 pound ground round, browned and drained.

After the meat is browned, add the following:

1/2 white onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced (if you like it spicier, add some jalapeƱos or other spicy peppers)
1 can mild chili beans
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can mushrooms, sliced
chili sauce

And the following spices to your liking:

Garlic powder (and I also used some Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic seasoning)
Freshly ground pepper
Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute
Smoked Paprika
Big Guy Seasoning blend
Freshly ground Italian seasoning blend
sea salt
celery salt
chili powder

Simmer for about a half hour and serve!
