    2 lbs ground venison
    1 med onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    3/4 cup green pepper, chopped
    8 fresh tomatoes, chunky
    1 - 16 oz can Bush's Chili Beans in Chili Sauce
    1 - 16 oz can Bush's Dark Red Kidney Beans
    1 - 16 oz can Bush's Light Red Kidney Beans
    1 - 16 oz can Bush's Red Beans
    2 cups canned Sheepshead mushrooms
    3 Tbsp Chili powder
    1 tsp cumin


Brown ground venison. May need to add a little olive oil to venison as it is a very lean meat. Put browned meat into a slow cooker and add remaining ingredients. All bean juice was used although it is your choice whether or not to drain beans depending on how thick you like your chili. The mushrooms used was home-canned wild sheepshead mushrooms. Slow cook on low for 4 - 6 hours.

DH added 4 oz of Pepperoncini juice (not included in sodium content) which gave it a nice flavor and a little kick. You can add hot sauce or cayenne pepper to suit your tastes.

  • My DH made this a few days ago and it was very good and easy. We like spicier things so put lots of black pepper and red pepper flakes in it, and of course salt since we're salt addicts. Otherwise, it was fantastic. Even the in-laws liked it! - 1/3/11
