When it comes to winter, all I want is comfort food. If it fits in a bowl I am happy. We love all the soups, stews, and chili recipes this time of year.
RECIPE and INSTRUCTIONS for this beef chili can be found at the bottom of this post.
Ingredients Needed For This Chili Recipe
- Sirloin Steak – creates tender chunks of meat in your bowl of chili.
- Onion – white, yellow or even red will work.
- Green Bell Peppers – but feel free to use any sweet bell pepper you like.
- Canned Tomatoes – I used chunky tomatoes with chilies and regular diced canned tomatoes.
- Red Kidney Beans – but any kidney bean will work. So will black beans.
- Seasoning – chili powder and cumin are a must for a Texas chili recipe.
- Oil – Olive oil or avocado is the best.

Meat – Sirloin steak can be replaced with another cut of steak. Round steak is a good choice. You can even cut up a small roast. Of course, it can also be made with ground beef, a favourite for classic chili.
Spices – You can make this as spicy as you like. Add more chili powder or a combination of different chili powders. Jalapenos are a great addition, and red chili flakes will heat things up too.
Storage – This chili will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge in a covered container. It is freezer friendly too.
Garnish – So many options to top your bowl of chili. Cheese, sour cream, Greek yogurt, chopped avocado, green onions, and crumbled nacho chips.
