Fiery Steak Chili Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Beef: For this recipe, I used bottom round roast. The large beef cubes add a satisfying texture. If preferred, you can use ground beef but consider reducing or omitting the olive oil.
  • Jalapeno peppers: The spiciness can be controlled by your choice of jalapenos. Older peppers, which are spicier, have white lines or flecks, while younger, milder peppers have clear, shiny skin.
  • Onions: Yellow onions were used in this recipe, but white onions can be substituted if that’s what you have.

How to Store Fiery Steak Chili

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days. For longer storage, freeze the chili in a freezer-safe container for up to six months. Be sure to label and date the container.
