I chose to use lean ground bison for this chili, which is a great lean flavorful meat option. If you’ve never tried bison it is so worth a try. We use it for tacos, casseroles and other recipes that call for ground meat. Ground bison is a healthy alternative to ground beef because it’s naturally lower in fat, higher in protein and has a rich, delectable flavor.
