Place beef, garlic and onion in a very large pot, set over medium-high heat. Cook, breaking up beef with a fork, for 8 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain to discard any fat.
Add beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, zucchini, bell peppers, carrot, corn, chili powder, cumin, oregano, hot pepper sauce and salt to pot. Stir well. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover, gently simmer, stirring occasionally, and cook for about 1 hour or until desired thickness is reached.
Stir in half the Cheddar cheese and coriander (if using). Ladle chili into bowls and sprinkle each bowl with remaining cheese.
