With the recent fall weather change I’ve been craving more hearty, warm meals. I decided to put a twist on traditional chili recipes and add bison instead of the usual turkey or ground beef.   It turned out delicious!


-1/2+ lb ground bison
-2 sweet potatoes
-2 c black beans
-1 c tomato
-4 jalapeno peppers
-1 c yellow onion
-2 c zucchini
-3 cloves garlic
-1/2 tsp (ea) ground cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper
-sea salt, pepper
-fresh herbs (for garnish)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Dice the sweet potatoes, drizzle with olive oil and sea salt and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes. Set aside.

Mix the ground bison in a bowl with the cumin, paprika and cayenne.   Add sea salt and pepper. Heat a skillet/pan on medium, add butter/coconut oil (or cooking oil of your choice) and cook the ground bison for approximately 8 minutes.

Dice the tomato, jalapenos, yellow onion, zucchini and mince the garlic.   Sautee the first jalapeno, onion and zucchini on medium/low heat, adding the minced garlic last.  Turn down to low and add in the remaining ingredients (tomato, baked sweet potato, black beans, bison), stir to combine. Serve with fresh herbs of your choice; I used hot n’ spicy oregano.   Bison Appetit!
