  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper (seriously!)
  • 15-ounce can white beans
  • 15-ounce can kidney beans
  • 15-ounce can black beans
  • 15-ounce can pinto beans
  • 15-ounce can lentils
  • 4 cups chopped zucchini
  • 4 cups (32 ounces) organic bell pepper-tomato soup
  • 1 heaping teaspoon sea salt
  • Chopped cilantro, for garnish.


It’s a dump!
