Betsy's Bison Cookbook

I absolutely adore buffalo/bison. It is so much leaner and richer than any other meat you can cook with, but finding recipes is hard. Here are a few of my tested recipes. Just remember that buffalo is leaner than even turkey, so it needs to be cooked slower and at lower heats than beef.

So, we liked the chorizo black bean chili, but it's high in calories and fat. So here is a bison version substituting chipotle peppers for the bell peppers. If you don't like your chili spicy, you can use green chiles or sweet peppers instead.

I've never made traditional stuffed peppers before. This is an adaptation of my husband's mother's stuffed pepper recipe. I chose to use bison because it's leaner and has better nutrients. And Rotel tomatoes for some spice.

The original recipe is from BetterRecipes.com but calls for ground beef. We really prefer bison and it is leaner and better for you.

I had this great leftover roast bison that had been cooked in tomatoes with chiles. I figured it would make great enchiladas...so here you go!

I love when I can get buffalo roasts for stew. Buffalo is the leanest meat you can buy and it has the added benefits of high iron content and high protein content. Cooking it in a slow cooker in liquid such as stew gives you a rich flavorful and healthy meal!

This is what I came up with for our SuperBowl feast. I am cooking it in my rice cooker which has a slow cooker feature, but it can be cooked in any slow cooker and the instructions will reflect that.
