Beef, Moose or Venison Chili

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Catnip46

This is a really thick hot chile. I myself don't use the hot peppers or Tabasco sauce. I also use the ground red pepper instead of the crushed red pepper. I like my chili a little more thinner so I also add tomato juice. Make this on a nice cold day and it'll heat you up in no time.

This was a big hit with my crew! I made it with moose meat. I didn't use the MSG and I used slightly less hot peppers. It's easy to do in the crock pot as well... just cook on low (after browning moose, onions, bacon, garlic) for a few hours. It's a hearty and filling chili!
