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!
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.
