For serving (optional)
Begin by browning your ground beef in a large skillet.
Once the ground beef is browned, drain any excess fat from the skillet and set it aside.
Chop your zucchini and carrots into very small pieces.
Dice your onion.
Add the ground beef, carrots, onion, and zucchini into your crockpot.
Rinse and drain your beans well and then add them to the crockpot.
Add the diced tomato with their juices in with the mixture.
Add all of the remaining ingredients into your crockpot and then stir well.
Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. This recipe can be cooked longer, if needed.
One bag of baby carrots (about one pound, if you want to use regular carrots) and the zucchini may seem like a lot of veggies but once they are finely chopped and then cooked down they will blend into the chili.
