Mmm..mmm..good Chili

I used to make this recipe with Buffalo meat but then we lost our source for buffalo 🙁 I have made it with beef as well but it always seemed a bit more exciting with the buffalo. AND THEN my sweet father in law who always blesses us with delicious wild game and fish brought us some ground elk. I used this for the chili and now I know I’m officially spoiled, it was soooooooo…(breath)…soooooooooo….GOOD! Hope you guys enjoy it as well!

Elk Chili

1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 C chopped onions
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 C chopped celery
1 C chopped bell pepper
1 1/2 lb Elk, buffalo, or grass fed beef
2 tsp thyme leaves
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp sea salt
1 8 oz can tomatoes
1 12 oz jar of salsa
1 15 oz can of kidney beans

In a dutch oven or crockpot on medium high melt oil and saute onions, garlic, celery and pepper for about 5 minutes. Add ground meat and spices stirring frequently for 5-10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for a minimum of 1hour.

If all goes well, you will look like this-
