“This spicy chili recipe uses ground buffalo. To step up the heat, use different peppers and experiment with the seasonings. This gets even better if you let it sit overnight. The chili is so good you'll need to find another way to use up your cheese and crackers.”

My husband and I LOVED this recipe! I doubled it, using 1lb ground bison and 1lb ground turkey. Everything else was the same. I was going to take leftovers to my parents house for dinner, but there wasn't enough to take! Very good.



Very Good Chili!! So easy, my husband whipped up a batch in no time. Followed recipe as stated. Thank you for making it easy to follow.
