"This is our home made deer chili recipe. We eat venison whenever possible as it is healthier than beef. This is a great chili to serve at parties and to get friends that think they don't like venison to try it out. They will be greatly surprised! Enjoy!"

I added some BBQ sauce, and took first place in a local chili cook off with this recipe three years ago. Very good.
I added lots of barbeque sauce to give it more flavor.
I used caribou burger w/venison steak. The entire group liked it....
The original recipe was much spicier. Allrecipes changed my original recipe. I used baby portabella mushrooms, more chili powder, more paprika, more garlic, and sweet italian sausage. I also did not use the liquid with canned diced tomatoes, I like my chili thick, not runny.
Thank you for the great reviews!!
The recipe was good but I thought it needed more spice. I added several tablespoons of Tabasco Chipolte sauce. I also added canned and rinsed red kidney and white navy beans. I thought it turned out very good. Men at a church wild game feast ate it all, so it must have been good.
I like mine with hot italian sausage , gives a bit more kick .
Didn't have any Italian sausage, so spiced up some breakfast sausage w/ no problems. Also added another pound of ground venison; it was a little too saucy. Made for a friend watching her diet and she loved it!
