Do you already have a meat version that you like? If I make vegetarian chili, I use the same spices as for meat, just omit the meat & use 2 or 3 kinds of beans. Maybe add extra peppers. Or you can use a meat substitute such as quorn.

I have never made chili because I don't like beef that much. BUT....I did find online a recipe that used zucchini & another that used sweet potatoes........& that sounds kinda yummy. Thank you..........

You can take any chili recipe and spice it to please yourself. Use less spice.

Exactly. If it calls for 3 tablespoons of chili powder and you don't like spicy, start with 1 tablespoon or less, and taste.

My family is all over the place in terms of how spicy they like food, so I err on the mild side and let the heat lovers (which include me!) add their own salsa, sriracha, or whatever will work with the flavor to spice it up, to taste.

I love a bean chili over a sweet potato. The flavors go well.

I'm looking for something new with a little "pizzazz"..........that includes vegetables for texture & flavor in place of the meat.

I like to use lentils instead of meat, & add carrots & spinach, beans. Play around, you can make one to your tastes. Then I serve it with either a sweet potato or a winter squash.

Honestly, I just throw beans and tomatoes in my crock-pot along with TVP or cashews or whatever I want (could also add tofu or tempeh or what-have-you, or if it doesn't need to be protein, mushrooms or jackfruit or whatever), and then throw in any spices that sound good. You can skip the spices entirely if you want to; I think my mom never used chili powder, for example.
