Best venison chili I have ever eaten!

Postby Oletrapper » Sat Sep 24, 2011 11:29 am

Licking River Chili
6 pounds coarsely ground beef or finely ground venison (chili-grind)
1 ½ large chopped onion fine
2 ½ cloves garlic, minced
1 ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
1 ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
6 teaspoons chili powder, 8 or 9 if you like it hot
2 (16-ounce) cans tomatoes
Salt to taste
2 ½ cups hot water
1 whole Hershey bar for color and Dixie Chili style taste. (Dixie Chili is a local chili company in N. Kentucky and chocolate is one of the ingredients in their secret recipe.)
In a large frying pan, brown meat with onion and garlic until meat is lightly browned; transfer ingredients to a large kettle cast-iron Dutch oven. (The above step is very important)
Add oregano, cumin, chili powder, tomatoes, salt, and hot water. Bring just to a boil; lower heat and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally for approximately 11/2 to 2 hours. Remove from heat. Skim off grease if using beef and serve.
Serves 16 to 18.

Sounds good, I'll be trying it soon. I Iive in N.KY. so I know Dixie Chili, not my favorite though. One question, if I cut all the ingredients in half does it still work? Sometimes the measures have to be changed.
