  1. Break ground beef into small pieces into a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir until beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add onion, green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, and carrot to ground beef; cook and stir until the vegetables begin to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir zucchini and yellow squash into the beef mixture; continue cooking until the beef is completely browned, 3 to 5 minutes more. Drain excess liquid from the pot and return to medium heat.
  2. Stir crushed tomatoes, kidney beans, black beans, diced tomatoes, corn, and garlic into the beef mixture; bring to a boil. Season mixture with chili powder, brown sugar, paprika, oregano, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Reduce heat to low, place a cover on the pot, and cook chili at a simmer for 30 minutes.

I'm giving this 5 stars because my 17 and 12 year olds detest too many veggies in their meals, but they both loved this. My husband and I enjoyed it too. Will definately make again.

Delicious and different. I needed to use up some frozen shredded zucchini and this worked great. I didn't thaw it - just threw it in on top of the ground beef. Also used a can of corn since that...
