Bison Chili

This recipe comes from Ted's Montana Grill.   It's definitely our favorite and I think it would even be tasty using ground beef in place of the bison.

1 lb Ground Bison
½ Cup Diced Onions
2 tsp Chopped Garlic
1 ½ Cups Warm Water
1 Tbsp Beef Base
¼ Cup + 2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
½ tsp Oregano Leaves
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
1/8 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Sugar
1 ¼ tsp Cumin
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Chili Powder
½ Cup Canned Diced Tomato
½ Cup Ranch Style Beans

Heat a large sauce pan. Add the meat and stir every minute or so, making sure to break up any large pieces that may form.  When the meat is halfway cooked (about medium), add in the onions and garlic to the meat and continue cooking until tender and transparent. Do not strain out any fat that may form on the top.
Combine the beef base and tomato paste with the warm water. Using a wire whisk, mix until fully incorporated. Add the mixture to the pot and bring to a boil.

Add all of the seasonings. Turn down the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the beans and tomatoes. Simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.
