I developed this bison chili recipe together with my dad one afternoon when we realized we weren't thrilled with any of the chili recipes we had tried before. This is a sweet and sour recipe with a mild finish, so it's tasty for kids as well as adults. With all the beans and tomatoes, it's a pretty forgiving dish. This is a time-intensive recipe, but it yields a lot of food, so plan for leftovers. Serve with Greek yogurt on top or over a baked potato.
Go crazy with the spices! This is a sweet and sour-flavored chili, so try to stay within that flavor range, but feel free to experiment. For those who like spice, a teaspoon of cayenne will do it.
