Chili is a spicy stew typically made with ground meat, tomatoes, beans and chopped peppers. There are so many variations of chili, and it’s actually a great vegetarian dish—skipping the meat and doubling up on pinto or black beans still adds protein and makes a hearty meal. Chili verde is a New Mexican take on classic chili, and uses pork, garlic, roasted green chilis and tomatillos. White chili usually uses chicken or turkey and white beans, and doesn’t have a tomato-based sauce. Hot, spicy chili tastes even more delicious when topped with cool, creamy avocado, sour cream and shredded cheese.
