Post Workout Buffalo Chili

Posted: April 14, 2010 in Nutrition

If your nutrition plan calls for a high carb post workout meal, give this a try. It’s one of my personal favorites, and everybody I’ve made it for says its like eating heroin. Sometimes I’ll use ground turkey instead of buffalo, which is also great.

What you’ll need

1 can organic black beans (drain about 80% of the liquid)

8oz buffalo

1TBSP Unrefined Coconut Oil

1/8 tsp. Sea Salt

Cayenne powder

¼ C. Salsa Verde

3 tsp Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce

1 Thick slice yellow onion, diced

What to do with it

Put a pot on the stove on low/med heat containing the beans, the salsa verde, the diced onions, a sprinkle of cayenne powder and 1.5 tsp Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce.

Cook the buffalo on medium heat in a separate pan with the coconut oil. Add in the sea salt, a sprinkle of cayenne powder, and 1.5 tsp Frank’s when its about half cooked.

Stir both mixtures frequently. When the buffalo is about 90% cooked (don’t overcook it), throw it in the pot with the beans. Stir it for a few minutes, and it’s ready to rock.

Now this may be too much for some of you lightweights, so you can make 2 servings out of it.

    Do you still bathe in ranch dressing?

  4. fitport says:

    I don’t use as much organic ranch as I used to…but I still dig it. Especially mixed with Franks Red Hot, it just makes anything taste better. Even panda steaks.
