Colorado Buffalo Chili

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars
5

"This spicy chili recipe uses ground buffalo. To step up the heat, use different peppers and experiment with the seasonings. This gets even better if you let it sit overnight. The chili is so good you'll need to find another way to use up your cheese and crackers."

Great chili! I used buffalo, but this recipe is perfectly suited for any game meat or even regular burger, not just buffalo. I shortened the cook time by using the stove top rather than a croc...

This was delicious. I'd give this a five, but I'm not sure how it would've been if I'd spiced it up as much as the recipe called for. With a baby in the house, I thought it best to tone it down ...
