Everyday Mom's Meals: Welcome Baby Samuel!

Welcome Baby Samuel!

Today's post is dedicated to my dear friend Erin, her husband Paul, and big sister Mia Jo b/c Friday they welcomed Samuel Allen into their family. A beautiful bouncing baby boy who is just precious. Mommy and baby are resting well and the whole family is happy as can be. This recipe is for them, b/c Erin originally gave me the base recipe. For years I was looking for a good chili recipe and could never find one we enjoyed. Then about 2 1/2 years ago, Erin made this for us and we knew we had found the one we wanted to eat every time from then on! The only change I made was I substituted ground buffalo for ground beef. Why? B/c we love buffalo and have tons of it in our freezer :-) For those who have never tried buffalo, it's much leaner than beef and has a great flavor. It makes great burgers and can be switched out in any recipe that calls for ground beef. We get ours from a local buffalo farm, but most good butcher shops have it as well. So thank Erin for the awesome recipe and congratulations once again on your amazing son! We are so happy for all of you:)

Buffalo Chili

1 lb ground buffalo ( I prefer this b/c it's leaner and we love the flavor. Ground beef works just as well.)
1 lb mild pork sausage
1 onion chopped fine - extra for garnish
1 large can Brooks Mild Chili Beans (Can be bought at Kroger, Meijer, Walmart)
1-2 large cans tomato juice (I usually buy 2, but only use 1 to 1 1/2)
garlic powder to taste
chili powder to taste (I make mine mild for Alex and I. Adam adds extra)
salt/pepper to taste

In a large skillet, cook buffalo, sausage and onion until brown. Drain fat. Put in crock pot. Add beans, spices and tomato juice. Stir until well combined. Cook on high for 2 hours and then low for 4-5. All day really is best. Serve w/ finely chopped onion, cheese, crackers, taco chips, etc.

This sounds like a great chili recipe, I like that you used buffalo in place of beef.
