This chili is the best I have ever made. It was worth the hour and 15 minutes it took me to prepare it. I love spice and flavor so I added more garlic and almost twice the amount of chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt. My family couldn't get done raving about the awesome flavor and the crunchy bits of bacon are an unexpected pleasant surprise. I will make it again and again!
My family and I did not care for this chili. It was a little too sweet (presumably from the beer) and did not have enough tomato flavor.
Incredible!!! I added a can of white kidney beans (we like extra beans). I will make this recipe again and again.
This chili is WONDERFUL!!! I too was overwhelmed by the long list of ingredients, so I made it the day before. It takes a while to make, but it is well worth it! It is definetly better than the average chili!! Will make again for sure!
I have to preface this by saying that I don't like venison. Since we have a freezer full of it, I've tried and tried to use it up for my the sake of my husband's ego. :) That being said, I was able to take more than a few bites of this. It does tame down the venison flavor, but in my opinion, doesn't eliminate it entirely. My husband thought it was "good." Not outstanding, but just good. I thought it was more trouble than it was worth for just a "good" reaction from him. Thanks.
Husband liked this more than I did. I wasn't crazy about the taste, plus I now know I prefer kidney beans to pinto beans in chili. I needed to add a lot more chili powder and also hot sauce until it had the kind of heat and spice Husband likes. This was ok for a change, but I have other chili recipes that I like MUCH more. Thanks though.
This chili was awesome! I had 1 lb venison smoked sausage and used it in place the italian sausage and used 1lb ground sirloin. I also used a can of tomato sauce instead of paste. It was excellent. The whole family loved it!! There were no leftovers. I will definitely make this again.
I can't stand venison and this was perfect for me. I had no idea there was venison in this. It was excellant. The long list of ingredients can be scary, but it's really not that hard and well worth it. I will make this again.
