In a large skillet, saute onion, celery and garlic in oil until tender; add to the Dutch oven. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, salsa, zucchini, carrots, corn, chilies, cumin, chili powder and basil.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Garnish with cheese and tortilla chips if desired. Soup may be frozen for up to 3 months. Makes 10 servings (3-3/4 quarts).

Beef Corn Bread Dinner

1 pound ground beef
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon salt
1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

Tangy Tomato Sauce:
2 tablespoons cold water
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 can (8 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons chopped chili peppers
2 tablespoons chopped green pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in ketchup and salt.

Prepare corn muffin mix according to package directions. Spread half of the batter into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Spoon beef mixture over batter; sprinkle with cheese. Spread remaining batter over cheese.

Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Let bread stand for 5 minutes after removing from oven; cut into squares and spoon sauce over. Makes 6-8 servings.
