This is a thick, sweet and mild chili intended for northern palettes that favor milder and less spicy chili over the fiery hot flavors of southern style chili soups. The primary benefit is that you can use (and mask the flavor of) large quantities of ground venison and few if anyone will know the difference.
Ready in: 1 hour 30 mins
IngredientsMakes: 3 gallons
- 1 cup butter
- 3 pounds ground venison
- 1 green bell pepper, diced

Preparation methodPrep: 30 mins | Cook: 1 hour
1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the ground venison, bell pepper, and onion. Cook and stir until the venison is crumbly and no longer pink, about 15 minutes.
2. Stir in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, kidney beans, and mushrooms. Add the brown sugar, black pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, chili powder, chives, red pepper flakes, and seasoned salt.
3. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer 3 hours to blend the flavors together.
4. Adjust seasonings for your taste, use less red pepper for milder chili, add more red pepper and couple tablespoons hot sauce for more zing. Serve with shredded cheese and sour cream and enjoy!Other ideas
