Good chili recipe that plays well with venison. It doesn't hid the venison flavor that much like most venison chilis. I had never thought of adding balsamic vinegar to chili before and it added a nice layer to the flavor. I used plain tomato sauce rather than ketchup because I only realised when I started it that I didn't have any plain ketchup. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC Spring 2012.
