Buffalo Sweet Potato Chili

    After a day of hiking through a snow storm you know what sounds really good?

    A big bowl of chili and a good friend who will put up with me after I eat chili!


     It’s even better when you add buffalo because well let’s face it; buffalo makes everything better, right?

You can also make this recipe substituting the buffalo for ground turkey. It’s a lot more cost efficient that way.

1/2 a red onion, diced
