How to Make Spicy Steak Chili

Spicy Steak Chili is a chili that will make your house smell deliciously spicy!

  • Begin by seasoning the beef with salt and pepper. Cook the beef cubes in oil until you have all the beef cooked. Set it off to the side.
  • In the same skillet add more oil to medium-high heat. Cook the onions and jalapeno peppers for about 5 minutes and then add the garlic to cook for about one minute.
  • Stir in chili powder, cumin, tomatoes, beans, chiles, and browned beef cubes. Reduce heat to low and let it cook for 4 hours.
  • Be ready to notice the spiciness in the air as the flavors in the chili all come together.

I love to add sour cream, shredded cheese, and green onions to top it all off before I dig in! Of course, if do not like spicy chili, you can always leave out the jalapeno pepper. But, I assume you like spice since you clicked on a spicy chili recipe! Serve it with Homemade Corn Bread for a satisfying meal.
