Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 3 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium, 1/2 tsp spicy and 1 tsp extra-spicy! Cut zucchini into 1/2-inch pieces. Core, then cut peppers into 1/2-inch pieces. (NOTE: We suggest using gloves when prepping poblanos!) Roughly chop cilantro.
Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then zucchini and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer veggies to a plate.
Heat the same pot over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Carefully drain and discard excess fat. Add Mexican Seasoning and 1/4 tsp chipotle powder. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Add crushed tomatoes and 1/2 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) to pot. Stir to combine, then bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until chilli thickens slightly, 10-12 min. (TIP: If you have time, keep it simmering on the stove for longer. It gets better the longer it cooks!)
When chilli is done, add veggies. Cook, stirring often, until warmed through, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper. Divide chilli between bowls. Dollop sour cream over top, then sprinkle with cilantro and cheddar.
