BUFFALO CHILI

When spending a winter getaway in Yellowstone four years ago, we had Buffalo Chili at a local diner.  We loved it so much, I had to make it.  We have bison at our local markets, but love to pick some up when spending time in Jackson Hole, WY.  You can order through this site

I turned to Betty Crocker for an easy recipe and added some spices and black beans, just like the diner served.

Well that looks scrumptious as well! The bread bowl puts it over the top. I think I will stick to Ground Beef though, since I’m not willing to step out of my comfort zone. I hope you are feeling better!

This looks delicious! I have enjoyed buffalo chili in restaurants, but never made it. I will have to give it a try!
