Ingredients

  • 1 lb. venison or ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cans 14.5oz diced Hunt's tomatoes (low sodium)
  • 2 cans 14.5oz chili beans
  • 1 can 14.5oz Hunt's tomato sauce (this is NOT pasta sauce, rather tomato sauce)
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  • Coat the bottom of a large soup pan with a small amount of oil.
  • Brown the meat in the pan.
  • Add the onion, garlic, and pepper. Saute for about 3 minutes.
  • NOTE- if using ground beef drain off the fat right now, before adding the other ingredients.
  • Add the cans of tomatoes, beans, sauce (these will be undrained), chili powder, and brown sugar. Stir.
  • Simmer on low for 20 minutes or until ready to serve, stirring occasionally.
  • Add additional salt & pepper as needed.
  • Serve with sour cream, cheese, and chives.

Notes

Using a low-fat meat like Venison works perfectly for this recipe because the liquid from the canned tomatoes nicely adds the moisture needed to compensate. Chili is a great recipe for ground venison!
