Today’s Menu: Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili



The first post of 2014! Hope all of you had a great end of 2013 and a promising start to 2014. Started off windy and quite chilly around here this morning, But it cleared up and the sun came out and warmed to in the low 30’s. They say we have Winter weather moving in overnight and into Thursday though. 2-3 inches overnight and early morning then another 1-3 inches through Thursday, not the way to start 2014. But a good way to start the year off in food is to have Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili as my first dinner of the year!




3 Bean Buffalo Chili 001
I had made this batch of Chili back in December and had some in the freezer. I set it out overnight in the fridge to thaw. To reheat heat I just emptied the container in a sauce pan and heated it up on medium heat until heated through. Love this Chili!! For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.



To prepare it; The Chili has Wild Idea Buffalo Lean Ground Buffalo, Dark Red Kidney Beans, Chili Beans, Great Northern White Beans, and ton of great Spices! Just put it in the Crock Pot, on low, for about 8 hours and you got you some mighty tasty Chili! The Wild Idea Ground Buffalo has such a unique flavor, an almost sweet taste to it. I left the full recipe at the bottom of the post. The longer the Chili simmers the more incredible aroma fills the kitchen!
