Nick's Zone - Chipotle Bison Chili with Butternut Squash
I am a huge fan of chili, bison and butternut squash. So, I decided to combine them all, with my favorite, smoky heat additive; chipotle.
To take this fury of flavor to the next level, I Zoned it out. Now, you can crush life with confidence knowing that you are fueled up and IN THE ZONE!
If you don't have access to bison, or would like to use another ground meat, turkey, pork, chicken, beef, lamb, or wild game will do. The goal of this lesson is to teach you the technique and encourage you to be creative with different meats, veggies and squash. One thing to note is the toasting of the spices at the start. You can always add raw spice at the end, but toasted spices have so much more to give. I don't provide exact quantities of spices because I want you to learn to work with them and adding and tasting is the only way to do this. Got it? Good.
I just finished up a wild weekend in New Hampton, New Hampshire. It was an amazing experience and I now have a new group of friends who I look forward to seeing again and again. We cooked up over 400 meals and some culinary ninja skills were honed. I will write a recap on the experience so that, if you want to host a similar event, you'll have an idea of what is entailed. Cool?
Alright, I'm heading to Bob's Clam Hut for lunch. While it will be hard to "Keep It Paleo!" at Bob's, I'm willing to make a compromise. I definitely earned my ice cream this weekend, but didn't eat any ice cream. I'm a sucker for clams, so I've come up with a new slogan, "Earn Your Fried Clams". What do you think?
Have a great day guys, we've got a lot of amazing content coming up and will do whatever I can to help you...
"Keep It Paleo!"
