Meaty Mushroom Chili


The mushrooms were on sale for two trays for $5.00.  I got two and used one of them for this meaty mushroom chili dish.  I found a recipe for this online, but changed it up a bit according to what I had on hand and added a zucchini for additional veggies.  Here's the link to the original inspiration recipe: 

Here's my recipe variation.


  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 slices Canadian bacon, chopped
  • 1 tray mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup water


  1. Prepare ingredients as described above (chop, rinse, drain).
  2. Add oil to heated pan.
  3. Add canadian bacon, onions, garlic, and zucchini.  Stir, cover, and let sweat.
  4. Add ground beef.  Break it up into crumbles and stir. Cook meat through until no longer pink.
  5. Add diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Stir. Bring to a simmer.
  6. Add spices (chili powder, cumin powder, sugar, black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper), kidney beans and water. Bring to a simmer and let it cook for about 30 minutes.
