Very low point Vegetarian Chilli

This is a chili I started making when DH was vegetarian. Little did I know it was actually a good WW food.

Veggie Chili
1 package Yves veggie ground round
2 cups dried pinto beans ( though canned work fine and save lots of time)
1 large chopped onion
1/2 cup tomato sauce (or a can of Rotel if you like the taste)
1 large zucchini (you can add pretty much any 0 point or low calorie veggie that you like the more the better)

All seasonings to taste...
Ancho chili powder
Salt to taste

Cook the dried beans till tender with salt and onions.
(or cook onions till soft then add canned beans)
Add the veggie ground round, tomato and seasonings.
simmer for 15 to 20 minutes adjust seasonings.

This makes about 10 -12 cups (or more depending on how many 0 point veggies you add.)
it is about 1 point per cup. 2 cups makes a very filling meal, with loads of fiber and low fat protien. We top with about a point of shredded cheese. And add either a low point tortilla ( 1-2 points depending on the tortilla) or a "flat out" flat bread. (1 point) 2 hours later I'm both stuffed and satisfied.
