My Tasty Tasty Venison & Pork Chili

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

My husband loves venison chili. We hope that you will enjoy this spicy dish, which can be made hotter or milder, by adding or decreasing the amount of chili powder and peppers. When cooking with venison, I always add ground pork or bacon because venison is very lean and can dry out easily. For the best tasting chili remove from heat, let the chili cool completely, then cover and refrigerate it until the next day.
