Old Dakota Chili

Making a crock of Chili doesn’t get much easier than this. Raid the pantry and find your cans.  Then go get some Buffalo meat.  But listen up, folks.  There is a “secret sauce” to this simple meal…..it’s all about the right sauce.  In this case—the right BBQ Sauce.  Big John’s Ol’ West BBQ Sauce is, by far, the best of the best.  I can’t imagine using anything else.  EVER.  You will never find a more perfect combination of sweet maple and robust spice…..it really makes this chili the bomb.  Truly amazing.

About PR

I’m an “Oily Yogi” ready to inspire you to reach for limitless possibilities.

With a lifetime of experience in the outdoors, one of my biggest joys is to share my passion for adventure with others. After spending decades in suits and buildings, I found a way to combine the office and the outdoors in a way that optimizes positive results. There is a clearly defined correlation between nature, sensory contact, and high impact performance.

I am recognized as a change agent, who inspires people to allow their dreams to become reality through group and individual experiential settings. But perhaps the best gift I can bring to the table is my passion for your wellbeing. I enjoy coaching and training others to achieve their personal and professional goals, focusing on health, wellness wholeness, and limitless possibilities. Everything starts with the self; and is unique to each person. Simply tuning into the breath, mindfulness, and gentle movement for starters. Whenever I can, we take the work outside.
