  • 1

    Slice the onions into 1/4-circle strips. Cook in the butter for about a half hour until golden brown.

  • 2

    Meanwhile, dice the habaneros with all the seeds. You can leave these out if you want this dish to be just a little spicy (instead of burn-your-mouth fiery).

  • 3

    When the onions are browned, add the habaneros and cook 3 or 4 minutes.

  • 4

    Add in the chipotle, breaking up the peppers in the pan as they cook.

  • 5

    Add in the green chiles and the taco seasoning as well. Cook 5 minutes, then remove from heat.

  • 6

    In a cast iron skillet or other heavy-bottomed pan, sear and brown the shaved steak.

  • 7

    Cook a few minutes until fully browned and then add your onion mixture to the pan.

  • 8

    Once it is all heated through, remove from heat and add the cheese.

  • 9

    Stir until combined and the cheese is melted. Serve on the rolls, and enjoy!

More About This Recipe

  • Turn the heat up. Waaaay up – with spicy Tex-Mex style cheesesteaks.These cheesesteaks use habaneros, chipotle peppers and green chiles for one truly spicy sandwich!If you follow me at all, you know I love cheesesteaks – and you also know I love spicy food. Well, I realized the other day that not only have I never made a really spicy cheesesteak, but it isn't really even a common thing that people do!I set out to change that ASAP and made these super spicy sandwiches for dinner the other night. Instead of just adding heat to a normal cheesesteak, I decided to take this in a Tex-Mex direction with some chipotle, green chile and taco seasoning.They came out really, really good and really, really hot! I love spicy food, but if you just want it to be a little spicy you can keep the habaneros out of this recipe all together. Or you can still use them, but remove the seeds to tone it down a little. But if you're like me, you're going to want to leave all the seeds in and go full on!
