    Buffalo, 1.25 pounds
    Great Northern Beans, cooked without salt, 2 cups
    Pasilla Peppers, 2
    onion, 1 medium
    salsa fresca, 1/3 cup
    Chili Powder, 1 Tbsp
    Cumin, 1 TBSP
    Garlic powder, 2 tsp
    oregano, 1 tsp
    red pepper flakes, 1 tsp
    Mrs Dash, 2 tsp
    lime juice, 2 Tbsp


Makes 6 1-cup servings. (Note: the spices are approximate. I like spicy food. If you prefer it less spicy, cut back on seasonings. If you like it more spicy, add more.) Wash, halve, and scoop the seeds out of the pasilla peppers. Cut the onion in half, end to end to peel, then slice vertical thin wedges. Arrange the peppers and onions on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with spices and run under the broiler until the skin on the peppers is charred, and the onions are browned and beginning to shrivel.
Remove from the oven and place the peppers in a paper bag. Close the bag and let the peppers steam a bit to make the skins easier to peel off. When the peppers are cool enough to touch, remove from the bag and peel and chop them. Add onions, beans, peppers, spices, and salsa to a pot over medium heat.

Slice the buffalo into 1/2 inch thick slabs, sprinkle with garlic and put under the broiler. Cook for a minute on each side, then turn the oven off and let the meat continue to cook. When it is still rare, remove from the oven and chop into 1/2 inch cubes and add to the pot. Scrape out any juices and add them to the pot, too. Add the pepper flakes, Mrs Dash, and lime juice. Serve with extra salsa if you like.
