Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups)

Much like the classic Beef Stroganoff, this comfort food dinner is loaded with hearty flavor and perfect for when cooler weather hits. Make this recipe to use up leftover chili in a new way that makes it feel like anything but leftovers. One taste of this easy weeknight dish has us begging for fall and winter weather! Warm spices like cinnamon and paprika round out the chili for a hearty meat sauce with plenty of depth. Serve with sautéed Brussels sprouts or simply steamed haricots verts or broccoli florets. Pair with crusty bread to sop up the delicious sauce.
