There are so many veggies in this chunky vegetarian chili recipe. We used black beans and chickpeas, but you can substitute any beans you like. Almost any vegetable will taste good in this chili, so if you have extra kale or spinach in the fridge, or you want to try butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes, go for it!
