Vegetarian Chilli

Sometimes just deciding what to make for dinner is the problem! If  someone could just tell me, that would be great!! But most of the time I am deciding myself. Usually I look around Instagram and Facebook for inspiration, or ask my friends.
Tonight I decided to make a vegetarian chilli
This is what I did:
The ingredients I used were as follows
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 stalk of celery, diced
1 yellow pepper,  diced
3/4 cup frozen corn kernels
1 zucchini,  diced
1 can red kidney beans, rinsed
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes and the juice
1/2 cup of water
1 can of condensed tomato soup
1 tbsp chili powder ( or as much as you like)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
In a medium-sized saucepan:
I sautéed the onion & garlic in the 2 tbsp of olive oil until translucent of course it started to brown…which is ok!!
Then added the celery and continued to sauté until the celery started to cook and becomes translucent
Next I added the diced yellow pepper and the zucchini and mix well with the onion mixture.  I cooked this for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well
Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat so that the chilli is simmering with a medium bubble, cover but stir often so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot! I simmered this for about an hour.
**** you can always add some ground beef, chicken or turkey , just sauté the meat with the onions!!
I served this with  some corn tortillas that I warmed up in an ungreased frying pan and some mashed up avocado that I added cilantro and lemon juice to and a pinch of salt.
