  • 3 pounds of ground venison
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 cans of chili beans
  • 8 oz. beef broth
  • 1 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 14 oz. can of tomato sauce.
  • cumin, chili powder, chopped parsley, salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbs  flour
  • 2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Brown the onions, peppers and some of the seasonings with the venison and olive oil. When the venison is cooked, add the rest of the seasonings. Taste and adjust to your liking. Add the flour to the venison and cook until the oil is absorbed. Add the tomatoes then the beans. This will make a thicker chili than you are used to. Add the beef broth to desired thickness, then cook at a simmer for 40 minutes. Top each bowl of chili with some cheddar cheese and sour cream.
