  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion in the oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ground buffalo. Cook, breaking up meat with a spoon as it browns, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the contents of 1 taco seasoning packet over meat and onion; mix well.

  • Combine the remaining packet of taco seasoning mix and the refried beans in a small bowl. Spread seasoned beans in the prepared baking dish. Layer the buffalo and onion mixture, guacamole, and sour cream over the beans. Top with the black olives, green onions, jalapenos, and the shredded Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted, and the ingredients are hot, about 30 minutes.

Made as written and this turned out pretty good. There are a couple of things I want to point out. Use a smaller dish. A can of refried beans does not cover the bottom of a 9x13 no matter how thin you spread them. Same goes with the ground buffalo. Another thing I want to point out is the cost. While this is good you are looking at a minimum of 30 (don't forget the chips) and that is using generics and buying everything on sale. I will definitely make this again for my own family but it is not one I'd take to a food day at work or a potluck due to the cost. You can buy a couple of nice steaks for that kind of money. The only ingredient I found to be off was the black olives. I bought two 3 ounce cans and 1 can ended up being more than enough. I love me some black olives but 6 ounces would have overpowered everything else in the dish. With all of that being said this is a good recipe and one I would make again. Hubs loved the fact that it didn't call for tomatoes. I really liked the leanness and flavor the buffalo gave it compared to ground beef. Read More
