    Buffalo Chili Recipe

    Chili is one of my favorite cold weather foods. I love digging into a hot bowl of meat and beans in a tomato broth. In addition to traditional chili made with ground beef, I also love chili made with buffalo meat. Buffalo is higher in iron and lower in fat than beef, making for an even healthier chili option.


    • 1 pound of ground buffalo
    • 2 14.5 ounce cans of tomatoes
    • 1 medium white onion
    • 1 15.5 ounce can of red beans
    • 1 15.5 ounce can of light red kidney beans
    • 1 15.5 ounce can of dark red kidney beans
    • chili powder
    • Fritos original corn chips


    1. Place the ground buffalo in a large soup pot.
    2. Break the buffalo into small chunks.
    3. Mix in chili powder to taste.
    4. Puree the tomatoes and onion together in a blender.
    5. Pour the puree into the large pot.
    6. Stir the chili thoroughly.
    7. Heat the chili until boiling.
    8. Open and drain the beans.
    9. Mix the beans into the chili.
    10. Cook the chili over low to medium heat until hot and bubbly.
    11. Serve hot with Fritos original corn chips.
    12. Refrigerate or freeze any uneaten chili. To serve the frozen chili, simply allow the frozen chili to thaw in the refrigerator and then reheat on the stove in a soup pan.
