Fresh Vegetable Chili

This is another family favorite. I'm lazy, I so use canned diced no-salt-added tomatoes, frozen chopped broccoli, canned and rinsed kidney beans, and double the amount of peppers, sometimes using half a bag of frozen pepper strips because a whole pound of that comes out cheaper than one measly fresh green pepper that yields just a few ounces after taking the seeds and stem out. I'll have this either with brown rice or make cornbread.
