Mealthy Tip

Since ground bison is about 90% lean, you can substitute either 85% or 90% lean ground beef in this recipe. When cooking with tomatillos, prepare them by removing the paper-like husk and then rinsing thoroughly. They are coated in a sticky residue that should be washed before using.

Made this with lean ground beef because the buffalo is sacred in our home (shrug). Maybe some textural difference, but I think it likely tastes just as good with that sub! The multipot managed to not turn the sweet potatoes into mush, which is a nice touch in this dish. I always struggle with them in stews. Added plain yogurt and hot sauce to mine, but YMMV.

I am currently on a primal diet and this recipe is the perfect to get lots of high protein meat and seasonal veggies in. I recently switched to bison from ground beef and sometimes have to add in oil for a little more fat... there was no need in this recipe. Delicious, will be trying again!

The sweet potatoes add sweetness to the rich, cumin and chili powder base. Bison is such a great lean red meat that is becoming more and more popular - see if your local store carries it!

I've tried bison a few times at a restaurant, so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it at home! The flavor of this dish is so delicious, and slightly sweet. Definitely a new favorite!

I swapped the sweet potatoes for black beans and kidney beans. I also added some coriander and used Mexican chili powder, an ingredient my family swears by. I loved using the ground bison, I think it has more flavor for sure.

This is the first recipe I ever tried in my pressure cooker and it was some of the best chili we’ve ever had! I can’t believe how well the flavors meld together. It made so much that we froze the remainder. I’ve never been a huge fan of red meat but I’ll be craving this one again soon I’m sure! I did add a can of green chilis for a little extra bit other than that it was perfect!

Super delicious and easy to get prepped for pressure cooking. This is a new one for us and everyone enjoyed it (even a picky eater that doesn’t do vegetables).

Delicious! I didn’t have bison, I substituted Venison!

I’ve made this recipe too many times to count! It’s so good and healthy! I always use ground beef but need to buy some bison!
