Looking for an EASY dinner that is extremely delicious too? This Bison Taco Chili Over Noodles is your recipe! It’s like your favorite taco turned into a cozy chili recipe!
I made this hearty chili, for the first time, a few weeks ago. It was a completely random mishmash of food I had in the pantry and sitting in the fridge. An onion, some ground bison (use whatever ground meat you like best), cans of beans, corn, tomatoes, etc. I threw in a packet of taco seasoning and in under 30 minutes, we feasted on an explosion of flavors. No exaggeration, this chili is packed with huge flavor. Satisfying meat, savory chunks of tomatoes, plenty of beans and spiced saucy goodness in each bite. Topped off with classic taco extras like cheese, sour cream and guac, it didn’t take long before this chili was completely devoured. I was a little sad that we had very little leftover because the next day it was even tastier.
To give this meal extra pizzazz, I served the chili over a healthy egg noodle alternative, No Yolks Noodles. No Yolks Noodles are made from egg whites and made the whole dish a little more unique and definitely gave it some major staying power.
Aren’t you just dying for a plate of that deliciousness right now? Chili is one of those magic meals that comes together with very little thought or prep. It tastes incredible. And then there’s the leftovers that make for such convenient lunches. If you have any leftover!
And No Yolks Noodles definitely became my favorite way to serve chili! I’ve even been enjoying the No Yolks Noodles in my soups, salads and using them as a quick and easy side dish with a little butter and parmesan or marinara. These are super handy for a variety of dishes! And I so appreciate that they’re cholesterol free, and low in fat and sodium.
After cooking the onion and ground meat, you pretty much just throw everything into a pot and call it a day. Aren’t those recipes the best? And this one could not be more perfect for the colder months I know we’ll be experiencing soon. Keep this recipe in your back pocket for game day, holiday celebrations, busy weeknights or lazy weekends. You can thank me later.
My whole family loved this recipe. Even the kiddos gobbled it up – and trust me, that’s saying something! If you have the whole fam over during the holidays, this substantial and completely crowd-pleasing chili is a lifesaver. It’s a fabulous option for dinner because it won’t take you away from the fun! Less time in the kitchen, more time living life.
