And a little jalapeno for kick.

Red onions for some flavor.

It’s so quick and easy. And crispy. And… oh I need to go make a pizza now. Bye.

      A lot of large grocery stores sell it these days! Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Central Market, online… it’s pretty accessible luckily.

    Looks great… but Did you use raw bison? Was IT actually cooked through By the End?
