  • 1/2 Lb Ground bison
  • 1 Large Onion Finely chopped
  • 1 Large Carrot Finely chopped
  • 1/2 Small head of cauliflower Stemmed, cut into small florets (about 3 cups)
  • 1 Medium Green bell pepper Stemmed, seeded and finely chopped

  1. Heat a large Dutch oven or pot over high heat. When the pot is very hot, add bison and brown it, stirring often for 5 minutes.

  2. Add onion and carrot, and cook, until both begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water to deglaze the pan, scraping brown bits from the bottom of the pan as the water evaporates.

  3. Add cauliflower, bell pepper and garlic and cook until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add cumin, chili powder, vinegar, tomatoes and beans along with 1 cup water.

  4. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are fork tender, about 45 minutes.

  5. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro.
