Vegetarian Chili

So was in the mood for something cozy warm to eat today and decided on chili - ran down and bought ground beef and then thought of my veg. chili we like so much.
As usual, will scan and post recipe and pic but for now the ingredients are: brown bean and Kidney beans, Veg soup, salsa, medium zucchini, 1 tsp paprika, tomato soup, chili powder, garlic, onions, celery, mushrooms,carrots, canned tomatoes & some of my frozen Romas, black pepper.Will take pic and show it when I serve it tonight. That's all folks.
Update: Ok, sorry once again - I know I should include the method.
Saute garlic and onion, celery and mushrooms. Once they are tender, add the chunks of Zucchini.If you cut it in 1"cubes, it does not go all "mushy". I have the carrots steamed ahead so they get tossed in after the zucchini. "Add the rest" How's that for detail? I like to let it heat in a crockpot on LOW for as long as I have time - really mellows the flavors.
Last night I topped it with Parmesan for a change. Today I'm making cornmeal muffins but sometimes I put my chili in a 9 x 13 and spread the cornmeal batter over and bake. Now that's nummy!
