  • Add all the ingredients for the Salsa de Aguacate to a food processor, and process until smooth. Spoon into a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bison, breaking it apart into small pieces. Add the cumin, coriander, paprika, chipotle chili powder, and cook for 10-12 minutes, until nicely browned. In the last 1-2 minutes of cooking, add the garlic, BBQ sauce, and chipotle peppers. Remove from heat.
