Spicy Hungarian Tilapia Stew

Photo: Squire Fox; Styling: Kaitlyn Du Ross  

Talk about packing some heat: This stew is fiery-fantastic, and we absolutely love it. You can alter the spiciness by using a milder pepper (such as banana pepper or Anaheim chile) or adjusting the amounts and types of paprika.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 1/3 cups soup, 3 tablespoons tomato mixture, and 1 tablespoon dill)
