24. I love Field and stream's
venison chili recipe. You could use hamburger instead. I only use a little of the can of chipotle pepper and really you could leave that out.
I find using the whole can overwhelms the taste. I copied this to my computer long ago. This chili has layers of flavor and everyone I have
made it for loves it. mojo
Field and Stream Editor's Venison Chili Recipe
Makes 12 servings
A spicy chili made with venison. A sure winner in a chili cookoff!
2 lbs venison
1/4 lb bacon, diced
2 medium yellow onions, diced
1 medium red onion, diced
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
1 yellow pepper, seeded and diced
1 green pepper, seeded and diced
2 oz canned chipotle chilis in adobo sauce , seeded and chopped fine
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
4 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp molasses
1 pint Guinness or other stout beer
1/2 cup red wine
1 1/2 c whole plum tomatoes , or 1 whole can
350 g crushed tomatoes or 1 whole can
650 g black beans or 2 whole cans
In large pan, saute venison until just cooked. Drain and set aside. Cook in batches if necessary to keep from crowding in the pan.
In a large pot with a heavy bottom, saute bacon over medium heat until it's brown and has given up its fat. Remove and set aside.
Saute onions and peppers in the bacon fat, stirring frequently until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and vinegar and cook for two minutes. Add chili powder, paprika, cumin, salt, pepper, cinnamon and cook, stirring often, for about three minutes. Add venison and bacon. Stir well and cook for one minute.
Add honey, molasses, beer, wine and tomatoes. Mix well, bring to a boil, adjust heat to low.
Cook at a slow simmer, uncovered, for about an hour and stir frequently. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more chili powder or chipotle chillies if you want more heat.
Add beans and cook for another hour, continuing to stir. The chili is done when it's thick enough to your liking.
Garnish with chopped cilantro.
This has such an interesting combination of heat and flavors from the chipotle chilis, honey, molasses and cinnamon to the Guinness and red wine. Delicious.
A big crusty loaf of bread is the perfect compliment to this fantastic chili.
