Bison Chili

This chunky, veggie packed chili is just the thing for cold weather comfort. A surprise ingredient, cauliflower, adds even more flavor.

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1/2 pound(s) ground bison
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 large carrot chopped
  • 1/2 head cauliflower stemmed and cut into small florets about 3 cups
  • 1 medium green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoon(s) cumin
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon(s) cider vingar
  • 1 15oz can no salt added diced tomatoes
  • 1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 15oz can no salt added kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped


Heat a large Dutch Oven or pot over high heat. When the pot is very hot, add bison and brown it, stirring often for 5 mins. Add oniona and carrot, and cook, until both begin to soften, about 5 mins. Add 1/2 cup water to deglaze the pan, scraping brown bits from bottom of the pan as the water evaporates.

Add cauliflower, bell pepper and garlic and cook until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 mins. Add cumin and chili powder, vinegar, tomatoes and beans along with 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are fork tender, about 45 mins.

Serve garnished with chopped cilantro.
