As the seasons change, so do our appetites. For the transition into the colder fall months, that typically means a craving for warm and hearty comfort foods like soups and stews. They’re easy to prepare, make great leftovers and are the perfect companion to a cozy night in. Of the many comfort foods we think everyone should make this fall, chili is high on the list. There are multiple variations, so you can keep your chili game interesting all season long. We’ve rounded up three recipes, which you can learn to cook on the Food Network Kitchen app.

We typically think about chili as a dinner meal, but Gabriela Rodiles’ Chili Shakshuka proves that it’s never too early for this hearty dish. Just like a traditional shakshuka, this chili is complemented with a couple eggs poached right into the dish and is the perfect savory addition to your weekend brunch. Finish it with your favorite chili toppings including red onion, cilantro and sour cream, grab some chips and get dipping!

If you’re a meal-prepper looking for something that will last you all week, you need a recipe that will only get better with time. Chrisy Vega’s Mexican Chili is the perfect option. The classic ingredients of ground beef, pinto beans and kidney beans absorb a unique blend of flavors including unsweetened dark chocolate. Just like a Mexican mole, you’ll get a dish rich with flavor.

Whether you’re looking for something to make weekends watching football more exciting or just need a good warm, spicy dish, Edward Lee’s Korean Style Texas Chili, which gets a kick from spicy Korean gochujang and dark beer, is your answer. This Texas chili takes about three hours to complete, making it a great option for a weekend cooking project.

Whichever recipe you choose, you'll be sure to get the hearty, comfort from each of these chili renditions. Check out the Food Network Kitchen app for more chili recipes and classes to last you all season long.
