Cut the steak into bite-size pieces and cover with water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Boil until the meat is very tender; pour off water and leave the cooked steak in the pot.
While youíre boiling the steak use a small skillet in which to sautť the chopped onions, chopped green pepper and the minced garlic. After youíve drained off the water from the boiled steak, add the sautťed onions, green pepper and garlic to the meat pot. Stir in.
Add the rest of the ingredients, from the stewed tomatoes through the Philadelphia Cream cheese. Stir together well and be sure the Philadelphia Cream Cheese is melted and blended in the chili.
Cover and simmer the chili for a couple of hours. Be sure to stir it once in a while and make sure itís not overheating and sticking to the bottom of the pot.
When serving you can add the optional shredded cheddar and fresh chopped onions, if you wish. By making this with the Kesslerís Whiskey it will be somewhat spicy, but remember the Kesslerís Whiskey slogan: It will be ďSmooth As Silk.Ē
