I make this for most of my potlucks and is a hit everytime. The pot is always empty. The only thing I changed was...the amount I made. I doubled the recipe. :-)

This is a wonderful chili recipe that is unlike other chilis because it is colorful (3 different beans), and it uses sliced/diced sirloin steak instead of ground beef. We all loved this recipe. The only change I made is that I only had 1/2 green bell pepper and I cut the amount of chili powder in half...everything else the same. I probably diced my sirloin smaller than 1". I served this with shredded cheese and a dallop of sour cream on top, (sprinkled w/ cilantro) and a salad on the side. Thanx for posting this recipe. We will eat this often!
