Foodie Friday: Venison Spanish Rice

Cooking is not my strongest skill, in fact, it’s probably one of my worst skills. That’s why easy-to-make venison recipes are the greatest things since sliced bread – especially when they taste so darn good. This venison Spanish rice recipe from Chris Lippincott, of New York, is a perfect example of how simple and quick it can be to whip up an awesome dish from our favorite wild-game protein. You can amp up or tone down the spicy hot factor depending on what you’re in to, in that regard. Give it a try and let us know how much you like it!
