Amazing Ground Venison Chili
Who doesn’t love chili?! Chili is just one of those foods that most of us really enjoy and some of us just absolutely love. Why is that you think? Maybe it’s because chili is just a simple food that’s not only delicious but also very versatile. It’s a total comfort food that’s great as an appetizer, great for lunch or dinner and even perfect as a midnight snack. And it usually doesn’t even matter what kind of chili it is either! Serve a bowl of white chili, vegetarian chili, ground beef chili, stew chili, etc….It just doesn’t really matter because any kind of chili just yells “delicious comfort food!”
But ground venison chili is just a little bit better than your average ground beef chili. It makes for a bit tastier and richer chili.
Prepared exactly in the same way you would prepare ground beef chili makes it that much more doable at home.
Where Do You Buy Venison?
So if you’re not like me that lives in the south and has deer hunter friends, you probably are wondering where would you be able to buy a pound of ground venison?
Luckily, nowadays, wild game meats are readily available in specialty supermarkets like Whole Foods and even sometimes found in the frozen meat section in your local Walmart.
Not only can you possibly find a local market that sells wild game but you also have the option of buying venison online.
This post by The Spruce shares ten online stores that deliver such wild game meats right to your doorstep.
But don’t sweat it if you just can’t find venison in your area or just don’t feel like investing in ordering wild game meat online because really this Amazing Ground Venison Chili should also be called Amazing Ground Beef Chili.
Why? Because what makes this chili so delicious is not solely the venison, it’s the simple delicious ingredients all put together.
So again please, don’t stop yourself from making this best tasting chili all because you don’t have venison because I promise you, you will be missing out on one of the most simple delicious homemade chili’s ever!
