Venison Chili Recipe
  |   September 15, 2016   |  
This mouthwatering venison chili recipe is just what your tailgate parties were missing! Lean, hearty venison is cooked to perfection with meaty Italian sausage, the perfect blend of seasonings and just the right amount of heat, compliments of chiles (use your favorite to adjust the heat factor). Serve with sour cream on a bowl with crusty bread. If venison's not your thing, substitute for any other ground meat, like wild boar, bison, or regular beef.

Venison Chili Recipe

  • ½ lb. black beans
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground venison meat
  • 1/3 lb. Italian sausage or chorizo
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. coriander (can be ground)
  • 2 dried chiles, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • Vegetable stock, as needed
  • Cilantro leaves for garnish

  1. Soak the black beans in a medium bowl of boiling water. When the water cools down, drain and add more boiling water. Do this 3 times total.
  2. Drain the beans and boil in abundant water until tender, then drain and reserve.
  3. Select a large shallow pan with a lid (you’ll use the lid later). Heat 2 tbsp. of olive oil on high and cook the onions and garlic for 4 to 6 minutes until the onions are translucent.
  4. Mix in the ground venison meat and the Italian sausage meat, mixing well and stirring with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and black pepper, cumin, coriander, the chiles, paprika and add the tomato paste. Mix well and cover completely with the vegetable stock. Boil, and then lower heat and simmer until the stock is reduced by almost half, 20 to 30 min.
  5. Add more stock and the beans and cook for another 20 or 30 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
