Butternut Bison Chili


2014/10/14 by nikkiledford

Here is an appropriate fall recipe. Good for those cool nights with the family or fantastic for leftover meals through the week!

The butternut squash gives this chili the spirit of starchy comfort food while still being a relatively low-carb meal. Alternative ways to enjoy this hearty stew include adding some paleo biscuits (here or here) or over some grilled grass-fed hot dogs!


Butternut Bison Chili

1 lb. ground bison (or beef if you can’t find bison)
2 c. butternut squash, cubed small
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 1/2 – 2 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste
(optional) red pepper flakes

  1. Brown bison in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add onion, red bell pepper, garlic, and butternut. Stir well until fragrant.
  3. Add some salt and pepper to season. Stir.
  4. Add tomatoes, chili powder, and cinnamon.
  5. Turn down heat and simmer until butternut squash is cooked through.
  6. Add red pepper flakes to taste or as a garnish when serving.

  1. […] Insider tip, these TJ’s labelled staples are actually the Muir Glen brand. I will likely use them to make some chili! […]

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
