Daks Butt Kicking Buffalo Chili is quickly becoming my new favorite chili.

One reason I love making chili is that you can use it as a blank canvas.  Use beans, leave them out, switch up the protein.  I’ve used pumpkin in chili and you can make it as spicy as you want.

This chili is what I like to call “company chili” because it isn’t too spicy and then little kids can eat it too.  I almost always serve with hot sauce on the side!


Daks spices recently sent me six of their most popular spices – each one is salt free.  My late husband had to have a low sodium diet after he had his heart valve replacement – I would have loved to have these options back then.

Ground sirloin I needed to use up, so this chili was literally ready to eat 20 minutes after I walked in the door.  I love this Daks Butt Kicking Buffalo Chili!

What kind of vegetables are in chili?

Carrots and celery are great in chili, but because they are pureed for a couple minutes, they don’t really need to “cook.”
