Bison Chili

Yum! We haven't had bison in ages, but it was delicious in this chili. I found the recipe on Paleo Plan's site. This was pretty easy to put together and tasted better than the last few times I tried making chili. :) You won't miss the beans at all. The bison meat worked perfectly in here. The flavors all play nicely together.

Bison Chili

1 Tbs coconut oil
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
* I added a few diced baby bella mushrooms
1-3/4 lb ground bison (elk, venison, or beef may be substituted)
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp thyme
1 (12 oz) jar salsa
1 (8 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (7 oz) can mild green chiles
2 tsp sea salt (optional)

Heat a heavy bottomed soup pot over medium-high heat.  
When the pan is hot, add coconut oil.
Add onions, celery and garlic and sauté until onions are translucent, about 3 or 4 minutes.

Next, add ground bison, cumin, thyme, and chili powder.

Stir while this cooks, about 5 to 6 minutes.

Pour in salsa, tomatoes, green chiles and salt.

Simmer for at least 1 hour.
