This Spicy Steak Chili is meaty and packed with bell peppers! The perfect spicy chili recipe for a cold day.
It's so weird for me to think that as much as I love this Spicy Steak Chili, I did not enjoy chili growing up! At my grade school, we had chili once a week with cinnamon rolls. I SO looked forward to it for the huge homemade cinnamon rolls, but I did not look forward to the chili. As a kid, the texture of the beans and ground beef were just not appealing to me!
Like most food aversions I had as a kid, I got over it. But I still remember being forced to sit through recess and finish my chili while my friends played. Catholic school, y'all!
This Spicy Steak Chili has a slow burning, smoky heat to it. It's the kind of heat that you don't feel right away, but you will feel towards the end of your bite!
I really recommend serving this spicy steak chili with some cheese and sour cream on top to cut the heat a bit. Saltine and oyster crackers are also a great addition.
I use sirloin steak for this steak chili recipe, but you could also use cubed beef roast. Or, go high end and use beef tenderloin! It's totally up to you.
If you do use beef roast, spend the extra time to trim as much fat off as you can before browning the meat.
My favorite way to serve steak chili is with cornbread on the side! For something new, try out this absolutely luscious Sweet Corn Spoon Bread! This spoon bread is easy (starts with Jiffy cornbread mix), moist and so tasty.
I hope that you enjoy this Spicy Steak Chili recipe!

If the chili is not thick enough after simmering, mix 2 tbsp water and 2 tbsp cornstarch together, then add to the chili. If the chili is too spicy, dilute with 2 tsp of vinegar and cook another 10 minutes. If the chili is not spicy enough, add your favorite hot sauce, 1 tsp at a time.
