Bison Chili

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Dave Oh

I am not too much of a soup maker, in fact this recipe was created from my first attempt at ever making chili. It's simple with some room open for improvement, so please post suggestions and let me know what you think of it.

I prepared this recipe last night, using ground Bison, and it was really delicious. My DH and I enjoyed it very much. I made about 1/2 the recipe and used red, yellow, and green bells (1/2 of each). I substituted canned pinto beans (rinsed and drained) as the kidney beans are very hard for me to digest. I added cayenne pepper for a little heat and used a tablespoon of canned garlic. I also added a teaspoon of cumin. The addition of wine to the sauce was great. The recipe was not overly spicy and was perfect for our tastes. We are looking forward to leftovers tonight. Thanks, Dave Oh for such a nice and easy recipe.
