  • 1 lb ground bison you can also use ground turkey,grass-fed beef or meatless veggie crumbles
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 30 oz diced tomatoes with juice I use the Pomi tomatoes in the carton
  • 16 oz white kidney beans can use cooked dried beans or canned, if you use canned, drain and rinse them
  • 1/2 cup salsa I use Jack’s Special medium salsa
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • tsp ground cumin
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

For garnish

  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sliced black olives
  • jalepenos
  • Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, brown bison and onion.  Drain off any excess fat (there won't be much because it's lean). Transfer meat mixture to the crockpot and add all other ingredients.  Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Serve with optional garnishes.
