Chilly Temps This Weekend, So It’s a Great Time for Hot Venison Chili

Temperatures are getting colder thanks to this little blast from Mother Nature, so that means it’s time for venison chili!

If you don't have venison on hand, practice your chili recipe with beef and get set for deer season!

If you don’t have venison on hand, practice your chili recipe with beef and get set for deer season!

If you don’t have any venison in the freezer yet, don’t sweat it. Just use some good ground beef and hone your recipe before you get a chance to put a few does or a buck in the freezer. Then fire up the chili pot and get ready for some good vittles.

Venison Chili
1 pound dry kidney beans
1 pound ground venison
1 pound venison stew meat, in 1/2-inch chunks
2 Tbsp. oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 teaspoons chili powder
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
28-ounce can tomatoes, diced
1 large onion,diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 large green chili pepper, diced
¼ tsp. cumin
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
¼ cup masa flour or all purpose flour

Rinse beans and place in a large soup kettle. Add 2 quarts water and 2 teaspoons salt; cover the pot and bring to a boil. Boil gently for about 2 hours, until beans are tender. Brown meat in a large skillet containing oil and garlic. Add chili powder, salt and pepper. Cover and saute for an hour. Drain the beans and add 1½ quarts water, tomatoes, onion, peppers, cumin and parsley. Simmer for an hour, then add meat mixture. Stir masa flour into ½ cup water to form a paste and blend into chili to thicken. Simmer for about half an hour, adjust the seasonings and serve.

Sounds great! Add some buttered garlic bread, cheese toast or some great homemade cornbread, and you’re set for a super meal!
