Bison, as many of you have now seen, can be readily found in most grocers next to the ground beef. For those unaware, bison has less fat, calories, and cholesterol than beef, while also promoting a denser concentration of protein, iron, and B vitamins. Still not convinced?
Bison has a rich beef flavor, similar to that of grass-fed, organic beef. Quite frankly, I've served this chili to many of folks who never knew the difference. Of course, a good bold chili is a great way to introduce new meats to those unfamiliar. Reminds me of the time I served up a heaping bowl of squirrel chili to a group of sorority girls... kidding. But, you get my gist.
Anyways, here's my recipe for an outstanding, healthy (sans the cheese and sour cream) Bison and Black Bean Chili.
