This is a quick and easy chili recipe that can be doctored to satisfy your personal tastes.
What to buy: Dried beans can be substituted for the canned beans if you prefer. Use 1 1/2 cups cooked beans for each 15-ounce can of beans called for.
Beverage pairing: Domaine des Remizières Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Particulière, France. A Syrah from the northern Rhône has the fruit, spiciness, and earthiness to match up with many components of this dish. Its dark meatiness echoes the bison, while the taste of the earth will match with the beans.
