This past weekend, I cooked up a batch of delicious and easy venison chili! With the cold winter months, nothing is better than a warm bowl of chili.
This is an easy recipe with only 7 ingredients.
Country Huntress Venison Chili
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Calories: 333 per serving
- 1 lb of ground venison (beef or turkey could be used too)
- Four 10 ounce cans of diced tomatoes and green chiles
- Two 14.5 ounce cans of pinto beans (or whatever bean you like best, kidney or black beans would work well too)
- One large onion (chopped)
- Three cloves garlic (minced)
- 1-2 tablespoons Chile Powder (Depending on how much heat you like, add to your preference, I love spicy food so I use 2)
- 1/2 tablespoon Ground Cumin
You can simmer anywhere from 20 minutes up to an hour. I think the flavors develop more the longer you let it simmer. But if you’re rushing to get dinner on the table, 20 minutes will do!
The chili definitely has a kick to it from all the chile powder. I love spicy food. If you don’t, maybe add only a tablespoon of chili powder. I’m definitely an “eyeball” the measurements cook, so feel free to change what you’d like to your preferences. This is a great base chili you can really make your own.
To top it off, I add a nice dallop of sour cream. This helps cut down the spicy heat when you’re eating it. You can also add cheese, green onion, or olives.
