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!
I did a slight varation on this recipie, I used kidney beans as I couldn't find the others, everything else I used, apart from I forgot the pepper and added sweetcorn instead. I added a little cajun seasoning too. I'll think I'll follow this recipie when I do a beef chilli just to jazz it up a little more.
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.
I went on the heavier side (1/2 tsp of cayenne) of spice and it was still weak enough for the kiddos. Like the other reviewers, I had a green pepper and beer instead of water. Delish! I added jalapenos and a little cayenne to my bowl and the kids lapped up their bowls without a complaint about spice. I'd repeat it in a heartbeat. Simple and most ingredients on hand.
Great recipe, I am not a cook but love to hunt. Found this one & with a few minor alterations my family loves it. Used Green Pepper, 1 Can of beans & replaced the water with beer. I also cooked up 4 strips of bacon & cut them into the chili with kitchen scissors! Thank you very much.
Wow, this was GOOD! I didn't have 3 tbsp of chili powder so I added 1 tbsp ancho powder and one tbsp chipotle (that may have been a mistake!) and I had to cut the cumin to 2 tbsp for the same reason. Also didn't have ground venison, only venison stew meat which I cut into bite sized little chunks and despite the heat I created with the chipotles, this was fabulous!!!! I love the cumin flavor and look forward to this with the correct amounts. I used regular chili beans and that worked out ok. Oh, and I love the addition of the bay leaf, I would have never thought of that! Topped with both cheddar and sour cream, even my picky dd ate this and liked it. This is a new fave!
Very tasty! No Anasazi beans here, so I used kidney beans.
