Place all of the ingredients, except the corn, in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the chili begins to boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the corn, cover, and simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Serve over brown rice or with a Cheddar-style soy cheese.
