Fine Dining: Mini Burrito Bakes

Why bison instead of other protein? Bison arent fed hormones or antibiotics; theyre free-range animals that eat grass, grain, or hay. The end result is leaner meat that tastes like beef.

"People think bison is going to taste gamy, and its not at all," says Rich Rosendale, celebrity chef and star of Recipe Rehab and the culinary documentary The Contender. "Ive switched bison in for beef in my recipes, and nobody noticed. However, bison will be noticeably dry if you cook it past medium. It doesnt have the same marbling content as beef." Try Rosendales mini burrito recipe for a new take on this high-quality protein source. 

Lean Gains: Ground bison has fewer calories, less fat and cholesterol, and more protein than ground beef. 

Preheat oven to 350. Brown bison for 8 minutes in a skillet on medium heat.
Add corn, beans, roasted tomatoes, spices, vinegar, and agave. Cook for 15 minutes.
Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Lay 2 wonton skins in each cup. Bake in oven until lightly crispy.
Spoon bison mixture into cups; sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 12 minutes.
Garnish burritos with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and sour cream.
