Allow me to tell you a little story. A couple weeks ago, it was a rainy, cold Sunday and I wanted to make something warm. Something I could let simmer on the stove all day. I decided on chili. A chipotle chili to be exact. While I was making it I thought well this is a chipotle chili so it should have lots of chilies. So I did what any other crazy person would do and added the whole jar. That’s right. Like 8 chipotle peppers and the adobo sauce. It had promise, I simmered it all day. It smelled amazing. And after about 2 hours I tried it. And then I had Ryan try it. And then… we ordered a pizza.
That might be a weird way to start out a post where I’m sharing the recipe. But you see, it’s not that the chili wasn’t good. The flavor itself was wonderful. It was just so hot. I could handle a spoonful of it but a bowl was pretty much out of the question. Hence the pizza. But not one to be defeated, I decided to give it another shot. This time I did everything pretty much the same except for the fact that I used a little restraint with the peppers. I only used 2. After letting it simmer for 2 hours, I tasted it. And then I had Ryan taste it. And then we ate the entire pot.

A beautifully simple recipe. Good for you for “getting back on the horse” (or buffalo in this case). Thanks for reminding me that I haven’t made chili in far too long. I will follow your example!

Sounds good! I love that you can call it buffalo chili cause you actually used ground buffalo.

I love all kinds of chili but never thought to use buffalo meat. Sounds interesting and looks delish!

I love the idea of using buffalo for chili! I also love the flavor of chipotle chilis, but I can only stand 1 or 2 in a recipe. They are HOT! :)
