Super Bowl | Bison Chili with an Italian Twist

Bison Chili

Are you looking for something different and delicious for your Super Bowl party this year? How about a nutritious hot dish that’s easy to cook and leaves you plenty of time to enjoy the Big Game? I’m suggesting chili, but not just any old chili. Oh no. I’m talking about a hearty all-American bison chili with an Italian twist.  This is a recipe that is sure to please. In fact, it’s so good that you just might have to block and tackle your friends and family from eating it all before the Super Bowl kicks-off!

For those of you who are not familiar with bison, it is simply delicious, lower in fat, and tastes better than the best cut of beef you’ve ever had! It is highly nutritious and is very high in iron.  Bison meat is also a great alternative for those looking for a tasty, healthier substitute for beef.

I’ve never tried making bison chili before, but since the meat is so very lean I thought it would be a somewhat healthier version of traditional beef chili and a perfect dish to serve for Super Bowl Sunday. I added some delicious, Cremini mushrooms, fennel and topped it with some velvety Taleggio cheese for an Italian touch.
