This chili begins like every other chili with browned crumbly meat, onion, garlic, beans (black, kidney, and pinto), and crushed tomatoes. After all, our star ingredient on this recipe is floor bison meat, which is barely sweeter and leaner than floor beef. If you cannot discover bison, be happy to swap for floor beef or turkey. If you would like a meatier chili, or just much less bison, strive including or swapping half of the bison for beef.
To focus on the subtly distinctive flavors of bison on this recipe, we add in chili peppers and cinnamon. Chiles de árbol provide a pointy, spicy warmth, and guajillo chiles will likely be barely candy and smokey. You possibly can swap both pepper for recent jalapeños, serrano peppers, or Thai chilies, or omit for a milder chili. We extremely advocate stewing the chili with a full cinnamon stick, however you can too use powdered cinnamon.
Lastly, you will additionally want some beef broth, tomato puree, dried thyme, dried rosemary, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
