A few days ago my oldest daughter and friend came by for dinner. She had called me earlier in the month saying she was craving my chili so we decided it would be nice, even in the heat of August, to cook up a batch. So I put a pot on using ground venison in place of hamburger. Yummy!
2 14.5oz cans mexican style stewed tomatos
1 lrg./32oz can pinto beans
1 15oz can black beans
1 15oz can kidney beans
- (or cook up a batch-o-beans from scratch if you like)
1 lb. hamburger (or ground meat of your choice- I like wild game)
1 yellow onion diced small
2-4 tbls chili powder (to taste)
1 tbls cumin (to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
substitute 1 Lawry’s chili seasoning package in place of seasonings and ease up on the salt
sauté chopped celery and/or 1 green bell pepper chopped with the onion.
- brown the hamburger in a large heavey dutch oven (be careful not to over-cook and dry out the meat)
- add onion just to carmelize slightly.
- blend the mexican stewed tomatos quickly in a food processor. (looks like salsa)
- add tomatoes, beans, and seasonings.
- bring to a slow boil, stir occasionally so as not to scorch on the bottom of the pan.
- reduce to simmer and cook for 20 min. to incorporate flavors.
- taste test for salt and pepper.
- serve with cornbread or tortillas.
