    MelMay's Note:

    This is my Dad's awesome chili recipe. He got a deer this year so I actually got to make it tonight with some ground venison he had given us. This one puts together quick, with just an onion and a pepper to dice, then waiting and enjoying that great smell. Deeeeee-licious!

    1. 1
      Brown the venison in a stock pot (I use non-stick).
    2. 2
      Add onion and pepper, saute until slightly soft, about 5-10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add remaining ingredients, cover, and simmer for 1.5 hours.
    4. 4
      I serve mine with a little sour cream and diced onion on top, and some crusty bread.
    5. 5
      My husband insists this is sacrilege, and serves his with shredded cheese and crumbled crackers.
    6. 6
      We agree that it is best served with an ice cold beer.

      Fantastic! I used a green pepper instead of the yellow due to cost and used beer in place of the water. It was perfect. Thank you. Made for Sept 2008 Cooking Challenge: Beyond Burgers. . .Ground Meat!

      Absolutely AMAZING! Made this with small cubed venison, green pepper, Rotel diced Mexican tomatoes with lime juice, red kidney beans, and chicken broth. I omitted the cinnamon and cumin salt. Can't wait for leftovers! Will definitely make this again!

      This was amazing. I did brown the venison in some olive oil as even with a nonstick pan it sticks. Also hard to saute onions and peppers dry, some oil was definitely needed. I could not find any anasazi beans so I used ready cooked canned red beans. I have a question, were the beans you used dried and soaked overnight? Canned beans would likely have disintigrated had they been cooked for 1.5 hours. I added my canned beans in for the last 30mins. Chili powders are different too depending on their source. I buy my chili powder from a local Indian store. It is VERY strong. 3 tablespoons of that would have made the chili inedible. I started with 0.5 tablespoon and tried it after half an hour of cooking. I ended up using 1 tablespoon in total. This was excellent chili.
