My husband and I really liked this. I used cumin in my meat while it cooked. I added a heaping tsp of chilli powder and Spanish paprika. I also used black beans.
I followed the recipe to the tee, excited to have found a new recipe to try with our annual freezer filled with venison, but when my husband took his first bite he kindly replied, "This hardly has any taste. I mean it is okay to eat, but it is really bland. Have you tasted it yet?" I was shocked as all the previous reviews said it was an excellent recipe. I took a taste and completely agreed with him. With all the ingredients in it I was amazed at the lack of taste. I used Zataran Spanish rice mix, which I feared may be too spicy, and deli style salsa not jarred. I don't know if that had anything to do with the final results. I saved the dish by adding a lot of chili powder, a good dusting of Goya seasoning and some cumin. I also mixed in a few slices American cheese till it was melted through. I hate giving a recipe such a low rating, but I cannot rate it high if the flavor is flat and bland.
This is great for a base recipe. I used Ro Tel tomatoes with peppers and beef broth in place of plain water. I also added a few generous shakes of chili powder. It ended up being a lot more flavorful than I think it would have otherwise been.
This was an excellent recipe. I did have to improvise some because my cupboard was bare! I used black beans, diced tomatoes with green chilies (yum) and creamed corn. Otherwise, I prepared as directed. I would say it serves a lot more than 6, though; more like 8 to 10. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
I have an abundance of venison sausage - i used one link, with casing removed, and altered the spices slightly so it wouldn't be too salty or spicy. It was hearty, filling, and didn't break my diet.
My family loved it. Th kids inhaled it. Seconds for everyone. Will definately make again
My husband said this was quite tasty. He wasn't initially aware that I added ground venison. I didn't make any changes or additions.
Very good use of ground venison. I also used can of Rotel as well as stewed tomatoes. Added paprika for color, cummin, a dash of cayenne for heat. Beef boullon for richness. Will make again.
