I kept this chili recipe pretty standard to help the flavor of the ground bison blend in with the flavors we expect from chili, as some tend to find the taste of bison a little gamy. It's a lean meat, and I've added only a small amount of healthy fat so that the chili is filling without being heavy. Bison is lower in calories and fat than most other meats while simultaneously being higher in iron.



  • 1 lb Bison, Ground Grassfed (cooked)
  • 2 cups Red Kidney Beans
  • 2 cups Pinto Beans
  • 1 pepper Anaheim Chile
  • 1 serving Vidalia Sweet Onion
  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper
  • 20 oz Strained Tomatoes
  • 4 oz Tomato Paste
  • 1 cup Beef Stock
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 tbsp Algae Oil
  • 1 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


1 Notes:
  Use jarred tomato paste
  Use jarred strained tomatoes
  Use cooked kidney and pinto beans
2 Heat oil in a pot over med-high heat
3 Add bison, onion, peppers, and chili powder; saute for 5 minutes
4 Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil
5 Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until tomato sauce has darkened, 10-15 minutes
