On a cold day there is nothing better than a bowl of hearty beef & bean chili spiced up with Slap Ya Mama.  Using our grandmother’s recipe, with a few changes, this spicy and hearty chili will hit the spot on any chili winter day.

  • 1 lb beef sirloin steak, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
