  • Prep Time
  • 6Servings


  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 1 red bell pepper, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO
  • 1 pound ground bison
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 cups no-salt-added tomato puree
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 whole wheat hamburger buns, split


Using a food processor, coarsely chop the onion and bell pepper.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the EVOO over medium-high heat. Add the onion-pepper mixture and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.

Add the bison, breaking it up with a spoon, and cook until it loses its redness. Stir in the chili powder. Add the tomato puree, brown sugar, vinegar, worcestershire and salt. Simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Spoon over the bun halves and serve open-face.
