It is a pretty average chili. It was easy to make. I used ground beef instead. Overall it is good chili recipe.

I was using up some beef I had leftover and came across this recipe. I was really getting tired of eating all my excess beef UNTIL I tried this recipe! This was a wonderful chili, and normally I would much prefer ground beef in my chili- not any more! It took about 9 hours in my crock pot (6 on low and 3 on high-my pot takes forever to cook!). At the end my beef was tender (but still in cubes) so I broke it up with a potato masher, giving me the texture I wanted. Thanks Mary, for this super recipe! Roxygirl

This chili is awesome though I tinkered with the recipe a bit.Instead of steak I used groun sirloin, instead of black beans I used kidney beans and instead of green pepper I used fresh jalapenos(We are Texans after all).The spice combo was perfection.I also cooked it on the stove at a slow heat for 3 hours instead of the crockpot.Everyone thought this was the best chili ever.
