Bison Chili

Bison was the meat component of this chili which made it a nice, lean dish.  It also had a sweet potato, green pepper and onions in addition to the strong level of spices and some cocoa powder.  I used the full amounts of spices listed in the recipe below and it turned out quite spicy.  If you are sensitive to heat, I would cut the spices in half.  We happened to love the spice and topped the chili with some Cheddar cheese and sour cream which toned it down a little.  This recipe does require some planning since it uses a slow-cooker and has to cook for 4-6 hours.

Bison Chili
Makes 4-6 servings

3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons sea salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
28 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 pound bison stew meat
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut in 1-inch chunks
1 onion, cut in 1-inch pieces
1 green bell pepper, cut in 1-inch pieces
Sour cream, optional for serving
Cheddar cheese, grated, optional for serving

Pour the canned tomatoes in a medium sized bowl and add the garlic, smoked paprika, chili powder, chipotle powder, cinnamon, cocoa powder, salt and pepper.

Place the bison, sweet potato, onion and bell pepper in a slow-cooker and cover with the seasoned tomatoes.

Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
