Chipotle Sweet Corn Meatloaf Chili or Chili Sloppy Joes. Put that leftover meatloaf to great use in a quick, easy chili recipe or make fantastic Sloppy Joes.
Here’s another delicious budget stretching recipe that lets nothing go to waste. Our leftover Sweet Onion Glazed Meatloaf was put to tasty use in this quick and easy chili recipe that was particularly delicious when served on toasted rolls with mozzarella cheese as some of the best Sloppy Joes we have ever tried. This recipe works so well that I’d suggest making a larger meatloaf than planned as part of your weekly meal plan, just so you cam enjoy this great chili a day or two later.
