The is a FANTASTIC venison chili recipe!! I made some changes, but LOVED how it turned out. Used one white onion, 3 stalks of celery, a fresh serrano pepper minced (with seeds left in tact), a green pepper, added dried: cilantro, thyme, oregano, paprika, garlic granules, a dash of cinnamon, salt & pepper. I also used a small amount of agave syrup to mellow out the tomato acidity. Then I added 2 cans of diced tomatoes, a can of tomato paste & sauce & a can of chicken broth. For the beans I used 2 cans of great northern white beans, drained. I omitted the o.j., but we LOVED the addition of the tequila!! It's subtle, but you can taste it in the background -- yummy!!!
Thanks for posting this recipe :)
I followed this recipe exactly except I only had 2 lbs of venison & I think my hubby used a heavy hand when adding the tequila because the taste was strong...too strong. It burnt my throat going down! I finally added the other chili I had made for a group of kids that were coming over...then it was perfect, so I wonder if mis measured. (We had to borrow tequila from a friend cuz I am more of a martini kind of girl!)
Loved it! I used 'chili ready' tomatoes and crushed tomatoes. Also, I always dump into my chili a combination of whatever beans I have in the pantry. So, I used Great Northern beans and Black Beans. I am not a big venison fan, but have two hunters in my home. This is one venison recipe I can enjoy.
Very hearty and delicious! I agree with the person who was worried about the 1/4 cup of chili powder but it worked very well.
I added one jalapeno pepper and one serrano pepper for some heat but I could have added more as just those two only spiced it up a little bit.
Good. I made this in the crockpot. I browned the beef with the onions, then added that along with the remainder of the ingredients to the crockpot. Also, I omitted the OJ because we didn't have any. Next time, I will add some chopped green bell pepper. Served with Beer Bread I from this site.
DELICIOUS CHILI! I didn't have any venison so I substituted with beef. It was amazing! The tequila definitely set it off!
i was skeptical at first, and didnt want to waste 3 lbs of ground venison. turned out pretty damn good. no leftovers at all when my old man and his buddy came over. thanks!
It was very tasty. We made it to specifications just to try it. My husband loved it. I even forgot to top it with cheese. Next time, because I like to experiment, I'll probably add some green peppers and top with sour cream and grated cheese. I think the tequila and the orange juice really do add something. Very nice recipe.
