  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle chile powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained (Optional)

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and bison until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Transfer meat to a bowl.
  2. Heat the remaining olive oil in the same saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute green bell pepper, onion, and garlic until the onion becomes translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cooked meat. Add chili powder, chipotle powder, and cumin. Stir again. Add crushed tomatoes, kidney beans, diced tomatoes, corn, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon salt, and sugar. Stir well; reduce heat to low and simmer the chili for at least 25 minutes.
