Introducing our Bison Taco Skillet, a mouthwatering delight that combines the bold and lean flavors of Wild Oasis Bison with a medley of fresh vegetables and zesty seasonings. This one-skillet wonder is not only a savory treat for your taste buds, but also a quick and easy solution for a satisfying weeknight dinner.
1 pound ground Wild Oasis Bison
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bell pepper, diced (any color you prefer)
1 cup corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned)
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
1 cup cooked rice
2 tablespoons taco seasoning (adjust to your taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish
Sliced jalapeños (optional, for heat)
Sour cream or Greek yogurt (optional, for serving)
Tortilla chips or tortillas (for dipping or serving)
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground bison and cook, breaking it up with a spatula, until it's browned and cooked through. Drain any excess fat.
Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the skillet. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until they become fragrant and slightly softened.
Stir in the diced bell pepper and corn. Cook for another 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
Add the black beans, diced tomatoes (with their juice), and cooked rice to the skillet. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the mixture and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until the seasoning is evenly distributed.
Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and let the mixture simmer for 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the ingredients to heat through.
Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the skillet. Cover the skillet again and let it cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro and, if you like it spicy, add some sliced jalapeños.
Serve your Bison Taco Skillet hot, either as a dip with tortilla chips or as a filling for soft tortillas. You can also offer sour cream or Greek yogurt as a topping for added creaminess.
