A question about a recipe: Smoky Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili

I have a question about the recipe "Smoky Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili" from Gena Hamshaw. I really don't like sweet potatoes. What could I substitute for them in this recipe? Mushrooms? Something else? It's not just a matter of taste, I suppose, but texture.

Do you like regular potatoes? Tofu? Celery root might be kinda funky but good...It's delicious when roasted!

You might also try parsnips or carrots, if those don't bother you, or cubed butternut squash.

Parsnips or carrots -- or parsnips and carrots -- are a great suggestion. (I'm sad to say I'm not a fan of squash.) Thanks for the suggestions.

I think mangoes might be a good substitute--they would add the sweetness that you wuld get from sweet potatoes.

Jerusalem artichokes?

That's also a great idea. Thanks!
