    Holy cow, I made this tonight and it was amazing! Even though I left the seeds off the jalapenos it was still spicy enough to make me sweat a little, but I loved it. Thanks for sharing!

    I didn’t have ground buffalo so I used small cut up pieces of bison. Also added some yellow peppers. Holy Cow is right! This is awesome!!! Love!

    Couldn’t find ground bison, so I used ground beef instead. This recipe is incredible! It’s definitely a keeper.

    Wow! This is incredible. I wasn’t sure about the sweet potatoes but they are just perfect. This is one of the best (and super easy) dishes I’ve made in a very long time!
