Lentil Chili With Chunky Vegetables

------This chili is vibrant with brightness of the chunky vegetables and the salsa combined with the expected richness of chili powder and cumin. Go hotter or milder if you like by substituting mild or hot Salsa for medium. I recommend cornbread and a salad to complete the meal. If you aren't feeding a crowd it should be easy to divide — or freeze the extra. People who prefer to avoid red meat can successfully substitute ground turkey for the ground beef.------ Note -- I originaly changed the title to "Chili-Spiced Lentil Soup with Chunky Vegetable" to reflect its entry into the Soup category of RSC#9. However, that's a very clunky and awkward name so I simplified it once it got back into my hands. :D
