Venison Chili 297 calories 5 g. fat 35.8 g. protein 55 g. carbs This recipe is wonderfully simple and good to eat. My mother made this with ground beef. I have swapped in venison which is much lower in fat and calories. HINT: this recipe makes enough for 2 meals, so invite a friend or divide it in two and freeze the rest for a quick Fast meal later.
½ pound ground venison if you are not a hunter, you can find it in some stores 1 cup onion, chopped & 1 clove garlic, chopped 15 oz canned tomatoes, whole or chopped, drain the liquid but save it 1 cup canned red kidney beans , drained and rinsed HINT: freeze leftover beans 3 Tbsp green pepper, chopped ¾ tsp salt & 2-4 tsp chili powder & ½- 1 tsp cumin, ground 1 Tbsp grated cheddar & 2 oz melon
Pour some of the reserved tomato liquid in a heavy pan. Add the onion, garlic, and green pepper. Cook until the onions and pepper are wilted, adding more liquid as needed. Remove the vegetables, add more liquid, and cook the venison until it is browned. Add the tomatoes, beans, cooked vegetables, and seasonings to taste. When it is hot and flavorful, put half of it in a container in the freezer for another meal. Serve with sliced melon and top with the cheese.
