  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add venison and cook until no longer pink, stirring to break up. Stir in garlic and onion, and continue cooking until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 2 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in Spanish rice mix, and cook until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in cooked venison, water, tomatoes, salsa, and kidney beans; bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in corn, and continue cooking until the rice is tender, about 5 minutes.

My family loved it. Th kids inhaled it. Seconds for everyone. Will definately make again

I made this last night with some ground venison we had lying around and it turned out delicious! It makes a wonderfully simple dinner for those "bottom of the freezer can't make it to the store...

The whole family enjoyed this dish! I used white rice and rotell and it was still good! I didn't really taste the deer, which is always a good thing! Would definitely make this again.
