Bison and Irish stout chili - Everything Anna

Bison and Irish stout chili

Lean bison and the flavours of stout pair perfectly with the spiciness of chipotle powder and jalapeño in this rich and earthy chili. Serve toppings like cooling sour cream, grated cheese and raw onion on the side and let everyone garnish their own.

  • 2 pounds ground bison
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped

  • 1 (19-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (16-ounce) can Irish stout
  • 2 cups beef stock

Preparation

Toast spices in a dry pan over high heat until fragrant. 

In large, heavy-bottomed stockpot over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons oil, brown ground bison, breaking up with a spoon. Remove from pan and set aside. In same pan, add 1 tablespoon oil and cook onion and jalapeño until softened. Add garlic and cook for one more minute. Add toasted spices and stir well to combine. Add tomato paste and cook for a few more minutes. Add diced tomatoes and scrape the bottom of the pot well to deglaze the pan. Add the canned beans, stout, stock and browned bison. Bring to simmer, turn heat to low, and cook for 2 hours. 

Can be preserved by freezing for up to three months. 

For a milder version, remove seeds from the jalapeño before mincing. 

Ground bison can be replaced with your favourite ground meat, we recommend ground turkey or chicken as another lean option.
