You won't get the same heat that you would from chilies, but you could use green pepper. That's what my standard chilli recipe calls for. They'll impart a sweeter flavor than the chilies.

And for a little heat you could add a little cayenne pepper.

Hi Nicole,
I'm not sure what you're making, but if you use bell peppers as Pa. suggested, you may want to roast them over your cooktop before using them. This gives them a great smokey savory flavor.
John.

Do you have any dried chiles? I would toss a few of those in.
