This is our home made deer chili recipe. We eat venison whenever possible as it is healthier than beef. This is a great chili to serve at parties and to get friends that think they don't like venison to try it out. They will be greatly surprised! Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crumbled and browned; place into a large Dutch oven. Sear venison cubes until well browned; add to sausage. Add ground venison, and cook until crumbly and no longer pink; place into Dutch oven.
  2. Heat olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the mushrooms, and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Stir in onion and garlic, cook until the onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the green and red peppers, red chile pepper, and jalapeno; cook until softened, then add to Dutch oven.
  3. Stir in tomato paste, tomato sauce, black beans, diced tomatoes, and water. Season with chili powder, paprika, cayenne, and oregano. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the venison pieces are tender, about 2 hours.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in parsley before serving. To serve, sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese.

I added some BBQ sauce, and took first place in a local chili cook off with this recipe three years ago. Very good.

The original recipe was much spicier. Allrecipes changed my original recipe. I used baby portabella mushrooms, more chili powder, more paprika, more garlic, and sweet italian sausage. I also did not use the liquid with canned diced tomatoes, I like my chili thick, not runny. Thank you for the great reviews!!
