Bison Sweet Potato Chili
Fall is here and this is a staple during the cold months in our household!
Chili is always delicious - no matter how you make it. Add a little bison though and some roasted sweet potatoes and voila! It's even better!
This chili is so easy, you'll never want to make another type of chili again! I started making my chili this way when I first did the Whole30 and it's full of real, delicious ingredients that will fill you up, keep you warm but not make you feel sluggish or tired.
Here's the recipe:
1 lb of bison stew meat (or any stew meat you like!)
1 large sweet potato - peeled and chopped into pieces of your liking
1/2 of a white onion - chopped
1-2 tbs of minced garlic
1 can of kidney beans
2 cans of crushed tomatoes
1 large can of tomato sauce
1 tbs of tomato paste
2 cups of bone broth (homemade recipe in the blog)
1 tbs of each seasoning, but it's up to you how much you want of each: oregano, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, cumin, and then add dashes of cinnamon :)
Now let's cook:
Brown bison in a pan with olive oil. Once the outsides are browned, add the chopped onions, garlic and sweet potatoes. Sauté together until soft.
Next, add in the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Let the liquid come to a boil.
Add seasonings and bone broth once the tomato mixture has boiled and let simmer for 30-45 minutes until sweet potatoes are easy to cut into.
Transfer to container to save for the week or serve immediately!
As far as canned foods go, I prefer to use Muir Glen brand - but it's important to read the labels of the type you decide to use! Make sure you are using clean products with REAL ingredients!
ALSO - As a Wisconsin resident, it seems to be that noodles are often placed in chili around here...but I'm not originally from Wisconsin :) So I do not add noodles - however, I highly recommend you enjoy a nice, warm cinnamon roll alongside your bowl of bison sweet potato chili and thank me later :)
