Jalapeno Bison Chili


My husband told me, “the best chili is made of meat, meat, and meat”. Such a dude thing. So I concocted this thick and tasty protein filled chili and it met the high standards of Mr. Gracey. Feel free to use ground beef or turkey instead, but we live in Colorado so Bison is sort of a must 🙂

  • 2lbs ground bison
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 diced jalapenos
  • 1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 cup water divided
  • 1/4 cup masa flour (corn flour for thickening)
  • 2 cans kidney beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 can diced tomatoes

Coaching: Add minced garlic, jalapenos, and bison to a large pot and brown the meat on medium. Drain. Add the tomato sauce, spices, and water and simmer on low for 1 hour. Mix the masa with 1/2 cup water and add to the chili along with the rest of the ingredients. Simmer an additional 10minutes. Top with your favorite add-ons and enjoy! Serves 6.
