When you think of chili, you usually think of beef and sour cream. Brooklyn Homemaker does not disappoint! This chili recipe is super hearty and topping it with sliced avocado incorporates creaminess and a little “good fat.” Get the recipe here.

2. Vegetarian Chili & Cornbread from Busy in Brooklyn

There are no set rules for chili eating, but a side of bread is an unspoken requirement. Test out your multitasking skills by baking both at once! The result is crispy-topped bread with a bottom layer of warm, rich chili. Mmm. Get the recipe here.

It doesn’t take a native Ohioan to know that this chili recipe is the real deal! Serve it traditional Cincinnati-style – over spaghetti and topped with a handful of cheese – or spoon it between a hot dog bun for the chili dog of your dreams. Get the recipe here.

4. Crazy Sexy Bean Chili from Fresh from Brooklyn

A vegan chili can be just as hearty as a beefy, sour cream- and cheese-loaded one! Just add more beans and a meat substitute like tempeh. This Fresh from Brooklyn chili does both, and even incorporates a little potato for bulk. Get the recipe here.

5. Poblano Bacon Green Chili from Brooklyn Winery
