Vegetarian Black Bean Chili

Vegetarian Black Bean Chili made with Larry’s Ranchero Sauce is a flavorful blend of vegetables, beans and sauce that everyone will enjoy. I invented my Ranchero Sauce when I was a chef in a vegetarian restaurant and this recipe for chili was always a favorite. 

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
1 cup diced zucchini (optional)
1 cup fresh or frozen corn (thawed) 
1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained. 
1 16 oz. jar Larry’s Ranchero Sauce

  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan and add the zucchini and corn. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the black beans and Larry’s Ranchero Sauce. Bring the chili up to a boil, turn the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Serve with cornbread or tortilla chips.
  • Serves 4.
