Alright folks, this is the end all be all chili. the first time I had this chili at my friend Katie's house, I was a convert. Chili has never really been my favorite, but this chili is so freaking good that Sam and I make it once a week in the cooler months. It's sweet and spicy (if you add the jalapeno, which I always do). Heaven in your mouth. You cook it in the crockpot, so it's a perfect sunday dinner. Without further adieu:

bison chili
  • 1.5 to 2 pounds ground bison (i usually do 1.5 of bison or grass-fed beef)
  • 2 cans kidney beans rinsed
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 1/2 ketchup
  • 1-2 jalapenos (optional) diced
  • 1 T oregano
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 3 T liquid smoke
  • 2 T honey

    Brown meat with diced onion, then drain. Add meat, beans and tomatoes to crock pot. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Cook on medium for four hours. Enjoy!
