Today’s Menu: Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili

Mom  and 3 Bean Buffalo Chili 004

 

 

Another hot, humid, and hazy day out there but they say Fall like weather for the weekend, I hope their right! We did get a brief shower but it just made it that much more humid. Reorganized the junk room, if that’s possible! Did throw away a lot of stuff that I don’t need. Starting on the Pantry tomorrow. For dinner one of my favorites, if not my top favorite, Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili! I love Chili and I love Buffalo so what’s not to like! When I first started making the 3 Bean Chili I used Lean Ground Turkey. Now I use Wild Idea Ground Buffalo. Either way is delicious and healthy.

 

 
Besides the Ground Buffalo I use 3 different types of Beans; 1 (15 oz.) Can of Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 Can Bush’s (15 oz.) Kidney Beans (rinsed), and 1 Can Bush’s (15 oz.) Great Northern Beans (rinsed). For spices I start with 1 Packet McCormick’s Original Chili Mix, 1 White Onion (medium), Chopped or Minced, 1 Jalapeno Pepper, Unseeded and Chopped, 3 Cloves Minced Garlic, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 2 Tsps Ground Cinnamon, 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves, and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste. For extra kick and flavor I added 1 White Onion (medium), Chopped or Minced, 1 Jalapeno Pepper, Unseeded and Chopped, 3 Cloves Minced Garlic, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste, and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste. Nothing but good!

 

 
To prepare it just brown 2 (1 lb.) packages of Wild idea Buffalo Ground Buffalo in large saucepan on medium-high heat 10 min. or until no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Add all remaining spices and ingredients except 1 can of the tomato paste and the cheese and crackers. Add to slow cooker and add in the remaining 1 can of tomato paste and 1/2 cup water. Cover with lid. Cook on HIGH 3 to 4 hours (or on LOW 5 to 6 hours). I usually cook it on low. Serve in bowl or mug with cheese and the oyster crackers, A Tablespoon of fat-free sour cream, or serve with some home made cornbread and ENJOY! For dessert later I tried a new one, Sans Sucre Mousse Cheesecake Dessert Cup. Something a little different and turned out real good! I left a another post on this and how to make it. Only 80 calories and 7 carbs per serving.

  1. Sounds fancy buffalo dish…
    i guess buffallo is got too rought and large meat fibers, better be grounded before cooked

    • Buffalo is the leanest and tenderest meat you can find. The steaks are second to none.
