"This recipe was given to me by a friend at work, who is an avid deer hunter. It's very different, but delicious! You would never know you're eating venison." — Donnak

2 1/2 pounds
venison, cut into cubes
1 (4 ounce) can
diced green chile peppers
2 (15 ounce) cans
kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 (10.5 ounce) cans
1 1/2 teaspoons
This recipe has a very good flavor with the venison. I added some diced stewed tomatoes and some tomato juice (not much). Also I used 1 can kidney and 1 can black beans and a little cornstarch to thicken at the end. Kept all the spices the same. As far as the purists are concerned-OOOH! So Texas "Invented" Chili and "there's no beans under any circumstances in chili, ever". WOOPEE. As far as Ive ever been concerned, why would you ever want to eat one of those "Chili Cook Off" chilis that is nothing more than a soupy gruel. Chili should be a hearty meal with some substance like beans, onions, peppers, and whatever else one cares to put in! Anyways, good job, great flavor and thank you.
good start, but everyone knows Texas invented Chili and there's no beans under any circumstances in chili, ever. Beans go on the side.
I am always looking for new recipies for Deer. I love to hunt and cook with deer until the freezer is empty. This recipe is quick and simple and is pleasing to the taste buds. Cannot rate the acceptability of children due to having none. A perfect meal for a working woman with little or no time to cook a full meal.
After doing Chili Cook-Off's in Texas for years, I was offended by the addition of beans, and then adding Texas to the name.
We used both ground & cubed venison steak, added tomato sauce, jalapenos, and served with cheddar cheese & sour cream.
I changed a few things in this recipe such as using ground deer meat, adding a diced jalapeno pepper, doubling the amount of beans, and adding 2 cans of diced tomatoes. Turned out pretty good.
I changed a few things too, I used ground deer meat, fresh peppers, one can of kidney beans, one can of black beans and used canned tomatoes instead of beef broth. I also cooked It on the stove. It was a good hearty dinner and I'll probably freeze some for later. + a bay leaf
A couple of weeks ago made this with my frozen deer chili meat.My wife and kids devoured it. Of course I helped too!And they were not aware that it was Deer! Keeper!
