A little something on this CHILI day…

There is just something about a bowl of chili or soup on a cold and windy day. It makes you all warm and cozy… Perfect for enjoying cuddled up with a blanket and a movie. Check out my recipe below!

Ingredients —

2 lbs of ground venison

1 onion, finely chopped

1 TBSP chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper (you could also use 1 package of chili seasoning for this)

2 cans tomato sauce

1 can of chili tomatoes

1 can kidney beans

1 can white beans

1 can corn

1 1/2 cups water

3 TBSP pickled jalapeños with juice

2 tsp sriracha

In a large pot on medium heat, brown the venison and chopped onion until cooked completely. Next add your seasonings — chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper. Then, add all the canned items — tomato sauce, chili tomatoes, beans & corn, along with the water

**tip – I fill the tomato sauce cans with the water to be sure to get all the sauce out

Last, add the pickled jalapeños and sriracha to the chili. I love a good kick to my chili! You can definitely leave these last 2 ingredients out if you prefer it not to be spicy, but it’s SO good!

Let simmer for 20-30 minutes. Top with cheese, sour cream & extra jalapeños. I like to serve mine with my homemade honey cornbread. This would also be delicious with sourdough or tortilla chips.
