Puerto Rican Chilli

Updated on July 11, 2016

A DRG Original Recipe

You probably know of dozens of ways to make Chilli with beans and steak. I'm thinking that you tried a bunch too but I promise you it did not taste like this. Today I will show you a Chilli recipe with a bang of taste and spice. I recently made this Chilli but it was for a smaller serving but I had to taste it and from there I had consumed about half before I realized that I needed to take a picture and share this recipe. It was a really good wholesome appetizer. Here's my recipe but of course you can add and take away ingredients to your preference. If you get heart burn I suggest you go easy on the peppers.

Here's what you'll need for Latin Chili:

1 pound of Angus ground beef

1 pound of chopped up steak

2 tablespoons Goya Adobo seasoning

2 packs of Sazon con Achiote

1-2 onions (as preferred)

1 green bell pepper

1 red pepper

1/2 gram of fresh parsley

1 cup of chopped celery

1 can of Goya red kidney beans

1 can of Goya pinto beans

1/4 pd of pepperoncini

1/2 pd of pepperoni

1/2 clove of garlic

1 container of beef broth

1/4 bush of cilantro

4 tomatoes or 2 cans of crushed tomatoes

1 jalapeno pepper minced

3 table spoons of Chilli powder

1 teaspoon of cumin

3 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons of Sofrito

2 tablespoons of Recaito

3 tablespoons of vinegar

1/5 pd of stuffed green olives

1 tablespoon of olive oil

Grated cheese mix

1 tablespoon on hot sauce (the more the merrier)

A skillet, wok or any wide low pot will do the job

For preparation:


Chop everything down to the size of your liking. I prefer chopped on the peppers and minced on the cilantro, garlic and celery. Add a cup of water and boil your beans for 30 minutes before you begin.


Chop steaks down to the size of your liking, I prefer about an 1 inch in length


Step 1

Place your pot on the stove on med-high. Place your grounded beef meat in and add 1 circular spin of Goya Adobo seasoning and your beans with sauce (already boiled for 30 minutes).

Step 2

Now add the pepperoni, pepperoncini and steak and cook meat for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Add all your vegetables 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil then cook for ten minutes

Step 4

Amp the fire on the stove to high and add in your beef broth and remainder of seasoning including the Worcestershire sauce, recaito, sofrito, vinegar and cumin.

Step 5

Add 1/2 cup of water and stir then place on high for 10 minutes

Step 6

Reduce heat and simmer for about 20-25 minutes. The longer the time, the better the taste.

Enjoy this Puerto Rican Chilli with your grated cheese on top. I prefer hummus on a tortilla or pita bread with my chilli rapped up like a burrito but a bowl of chilli is more traditional.

      That recipe looks VERY delicious. Too bad I stopped eating meat some years ago. But in my meat eating days I would certainly have given it a go. Wait a minute, I can cook this for my man. He's gonna love this!!!

      Useful and voted up.
