MUSSELS IN TOMATO BROTH WITH BUFFALO CHORIZO
The flavors in this dish complement each other nicely and the chorizo adds a nice spice! The sauce can be made in advance, leaving the steaming of the mussels for the last minute.

Ingredients: (For two servings.)
1 – teaspoon olive oil +
4oz. – Wild Idea Buffalo Chorizo
½ – cup yellow onion, diced
1 – clove garlic, chopped
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
1 – teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
1 – teaspoon chili flake *optional
1 – 15oz. can, diced tomatoes
1 – cup white wine
12 to 16 mussels, washed and de-bearded

*Store mussels in the coldest spot in your refrigerator. Place on a damp paper towel in a dish and cover loosely with a damp paper towel. Do not seal in plastic as they will suffocate. Discard any mussels that when pushed shut do not stay shut, or any open or cracked mussels.

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy sauté pan over medium high heat, heat 1-teaspoon olive oil. Crumble sausage into pan and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Remove sausage from pan, place in bowl and cover with saran. Set aside.
2 – Return pan to heat and add additional oil if needed. Add onion and garlic, sautéing until tender, about 5 minutes.
3 – Add seasonings, tomatoes and wine. Stir to incorporate and bring to a boil. *At this point you could remove from heat, cover and reheat when ready to serve.
4 – Add prepared mussels, cover and allow mussels to steam for 4 minutes. Most all of the shells should have popped open. Discard un-open shells.
5 – Add chorizo back to pan and stir to incorporate and heat.
6 – Serve direct from pan or spoon into serving bowls.
* Garnish with cilantro and lemon wedge. Serve with warm artisan bread.

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!
