It's better the next day and freezes great. You can replace the meat with additional veggies, i.e. more peppers, beans, or potatoes, carrots, etc. It's not exactly chili at that point, but it's still really good. Some people don't like the potatoes in the chili, but not because they don't taste delicious. They break down and make the chili thick and filling.
