Buffalo Chili con Carne Recipe

Publisher Photo
This classic recipe of the American frontier is so meaty you can almost eat it with a fork. The zippy combination of ingredients is a perfect complement to the buffalo. —Donna Smith, Fairport, New York

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2010

It has been a while since I made this but I remember only changing/adding a couple of things like leaving the green chilies out because I have young children. I remember it being very hearty, filling and tasty and the family enjoyed it! Yes, I'd make it again!
