What’s a Super Bowl Party without a big bowl of Chili at halftime! From the Wild Idea Buffalo website its a recipe for 4 BEAN BISON CHILI! Chili is so delicious and so many ways and ingredients to prepare it with. But using Ground Bison takes it to a new level! You’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Premium Ground Buffalo along with Spices (many spices), Stewed Tomatoes, Golden Pepperoncini, and 4 different types of Beans (butter beans, black beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans). The recipe calls for preparing it in a heavy stew pot but I think this one would be great preparing it in a slow cooker! Start it earl on low heat and let it cook until served at halftime of the game! This makes my mouth-water just talking about it!

You can find this recipe at the Wild Idea Buffalo website where you can purchase all of the Wild Idea Buffalo products. Be sure to check the site out. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

Friggitello (Golden Pepperoncini)

Several pickled friggitelli

Okay, I was curious about the Golden Pepperoncini used to make the 4 BEAN BISON CHILI. So I looked it up on Wiki and here’s what I found.

The friggitello (plural friggitelli) is a sweet Italian chili pepper of the species Capsicum annuum. It is also known as the Golden Greek pepper, Sweet Italian pepper, or Tuscan pepper. In the United States they may be called “pepperoncini”; they are quite distinct from Italian peperoncini, which are hot Italian chili peppers. The friggitello is mild with a slight heat and a hint of bitterness, and is sometimes pickled and sold in jars. In Italy the friggitello is most associated with Tuscany. The Greek variety, which is sweeter, is commonly used elsewhere in Europe and the United States.



Like many other cultivars of Capsicum annuum, the friggitello requires a warm climate with a lot of sunlight and is not tolerant of frost. The seeds take 10 to 14 days to germinate, after which the plant will reach maturity in 70 to 80 days. It appreciates slightly rich and well-drained soils, but overfertilized soil will result in fewer fruits. The plant has the potential to grow plenty of fruits, so it requires staking if it is to be prevented from falling over due to the weight of the fruits. The fruits should be harvested when they are 5–7.5 centimetres (2.0–3.0 in) long. Mature fruits will eventually turn red, but it is best to pick them while they are still green.




Even though it is often pickled, the friggitello has a complex flavor which is appreciated most when it is eaten fresh. It lends itself very well to sautéing, stuffing and popping. It combines nicely with fruits and is a suitable ingredient to use in salads and compotes or on sandwiches.

They are also often served with kebab, such as İskender kebap. Pickled friggitelli can vary in color from bright yellow to bright yellow-green. Sometimes coloring is added.[citation needed] If pickled, friggitelli are sometimes briefly rinsed in cold water before serving to reduce the effects of the pickling brine on the taste.
