  • 8 oz Ribeye Steak
  • 2 Green Bell Peppers medium dice
  • 1-3 Jalapeños small dice, optional depending on heat preference
  • 1 large Yellow Onion medium dice
  • 5-10 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 ½ C Sweet Potato peeled and diced
  • 3 cans Black Beans
  • 1 can Rotel or any fire roasted tomatoes with green chilis
  • 3 tablespoon Trader Joe's Chili Seasoning Mix
  • 2-4 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar to taste
  • Kosher Salt and Pepper to Taste

Toppings Ideas


  • Break down ribeye by removing all fat and cutting meat into medium dice size. Render fat in a dutch oven until bits are crispy. If needed, add more oil to pan. You should have about 2-3 tablespoon total. Feed the yummy crispy bits to doggies!
    Season meat with kosher salt and sear on all sides. Remove from dutch oven with slotted spoon.
  • Add bell pepper, jalapeño and onion. Add kosher salt to encourage veggies to sweat out water and to season. Stir occasionally, scraping up fond (brown bits stuck to bottom) as you go. When veggies are softened, add garlic and stir until fragrant, 30-60 seconds.
  • Add sweet potatoes, beans, Rotel and Seasoning. Simmer until sweet potatoes are soft.
  • Season with salt, pepper and red wine vinegar to taste.
    Divide evenly into bowls, sprinkle with steak and add any toppings you like. Enjoy!


All toppings are optional. This also makes awesome nachos and huevos rancheros!
