  2. Mix venison, onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, egg, garlic, paprika, cumin, sea salt, blackened seasoning, and cayenne pepper together in a large bowl.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir venison mixture until browned, about 15 minutes. Add quinoa; cook and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes.

Followed the recipe with our venison and it was actually really good. I didn't/wouldn't change a thing.

This was delicious and very easy to make! We used ground bison because that's what Kroger had, but I'm sure any lean ground meat would be great. We mostly kept the same spices, subbing a Creole seasoning and a little of Emeril's seasoning and some pepper for the Blackened seasoning. We served it over mixed greens as well. As written, the recipe makes a good amount, 2 dinners and 3 lunch portions.
