From fresh produce to canned goods and my must-have nightly ice cream (just kidding, not every night), I often find myself at Safeway for all my family’s must-have essentials (and not-so-essential wants). Lucky for me (and all you other Safeway shoppers), it’s that time of year again…time to play the SHOP, PLAY, WIN!® Collect & Win Game featuring MONOPOLY!
I am a BIG fan of games and free stuff, so this is always one of my favorite times of year to go grocery shopping. And with $250 million dollars worth of prizes and money-saving offers this year, I’m thinking we all have a pretty good chance of winning something.
Something like, maybe…just maybe…a $1 million dollar cash prize! Or a fancy new vacation home, car, kitchen makeover, or loads of other prizes.
There’s always a chance…BUT grocery shopping with the MONOPOLY Collect & Win game is SO MUCH FUN.
I play the MONOPOLY Collect & Win game at my local Safeway, but you can Shop, Play, Win! at any of the Albertsons Companies stores like Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, Carrs/Safeway, United Supermarkets, Amigos, Albertsons Market and Market Street stores.

How to make Steak Chili
Making a big pot of this steak chili is super easy! The most tedious part of the whole recipe is cutting the steak into small pieces, but I did this on purpose as I wanted small, tender pieces of meat rather than large chunks.
- Prepare your ingredients. Starting with the steak, remove any tough pieces and cut the remaining meat into small, uniform-sized bits. Transfer the steak to a bowl. On a clean cutting board, mince the onion, garlic, and bell peppers. Set those aside.
- Brown the meat. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven, add the olive oil and butter. Once hot, add the steak to the pot and cook, stirring often until brown on all sides. The steak doesn’t need to be fully cooked, however, given that the meat is chopped so small; it really only needs a few minutes to be browned on all sides.
- Cook the vegetables. Once the meat is browned, add the onions, garlic, and bell peppers to the pot. Mix well to combine with the steak, and cook all together for approximately 6-8 minutes.
- Add the tomato paste and seasoning, mixing well. Cook for one minute before stirring in the pasta sauce, chopped tomatoes, and beef stock. Bring to a low boil, cover, and simmer for approximately 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add the BBQ sauce, black beans, and cannellini beans. Simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes before seasoning with additional salt, pepper, or BBQ sauce to taste.
Steak Chili Toppings
The best thing about this steak chili is that it doesn’t really need any additional toppings. Whereas some soups and stews need toppings to help bring out or tie together the flavors, this steak chili recipe is fantastic as is. This makes it especially awesome because without any additional toppings, it is completely dairy-free and gluten-free (this may vary depending on the type of BBQ sauce and pasta sauce used, so be sure to check the label).
It is also incredibly high in protein and fiber thanks to all that delicious meat and beans.
If you love toppings, however, you’re not alone! Here are a few of my top picks:
- Doritos Nacho Cheese
- Sliced avocado
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Sour cream or Greek yogurt
- Chopped cilantro or green onions
