    I shortcut things and use the 2alarm chili mix, but add rotels and 1/2lb velveeta cheese.

    Ranch style beans, onions, garlic, jalapenos, red bell peppers, diced tomatoes, deer meet, bacon, seasonings, chili powder. Chop it all up and cook it in slow cooker until meat is done.

    meat, chili powder, can of hot Rotel, green chilis, a squirt of Ketchup and some kidney beans. Mixes well with corn chips, cheese, and sour cream for some Frito Pie!
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    2 lbs Venison Stew Meat
    1 package good bacon
    4 roasted poblanos (or hatch)
    3 cans Hunts roasted diced tomatoes
    1 can tomato paste
    1 package sliced mushrooms
    2 diced large white onions
    1/2-1 can of chipotles in adobo sauce (dice the peppers)
    1 six pack of Moosedrool - 1 bottle for the chili, 5 bottles for the cook
    8 cloves roasted and crushed garlic
    Diced green onions

    Seasoning:
    I eyeball a combination of chili powder, cumin, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne powder
    Masa for later

    Fry the bacon and place on a rack to drain and crisp, dice after crisp
    Brown the venison in the bacon fat (key step)

    Roast the poblanos on the drill, steam in a bowl, strip skin and dice. Google roasting poblanos, its easy and adds incredible flavor
    Roast the garlic in an oven, super easy, youtube this too. Do the roasting while the bacon and venison is cooking on the stovetop.

    Throw everything except bacon and green onions in a stockpot or crockpot. Cook for 2 hours but the longer the better. It really helps break down the stew meat. This is the key to great chili.

    Serve chili and put bacon and green onions on top. Adding at the end helps with texture. I add fritos and sour cream, thats your choice.

    From our family cookbook. We substitute the "ground beef" with ground venison.

    60 ounces Hunt's small red beans, reserve liquid
    75 ounces canned pinto beans, reserve liquid
    90 ounces canned kidney beans, reserve liquid
    105 ounces canned stewed tomatoes, diced
    3 pkg. Lawry's Chili Seasoning Mix (1-5/8 oz. each)
    3 1/2 pounds ground beef
    3 tablespoons Lawry's Seasoned Pepper
    1 small bunch celery, thinly sliced
    2 green bell peppers, seeded and finely diced
    2 large red onions, diced

    Empty all of the cans of beans and tomatoes (do not drain any of them) into
    a large stock pot; start cooking over low flame (just above simmer). Add
    the packets of Lawry's Chili Seasoning and the seasoned pepper; mix well
    and cover. Stir occasionally so it doesn't scorch on the bottom. In a large
    skillet, brown the ground beef; drain and add to the pot of beans. Wipe out
    skillet and saute vegetables over medium-low heat in butter or olive oil.
    Cover skillet to allow vegetables to steam, stirring occasionally. Once
    vegetables are tender, drain and add to the bean pot. Once the chili comes
    up to a simmer, let simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve
    garnished with onion and grated cheese, if desired.

    This recipe makes about 3 gallons of chili. It freezes and stores very well.

    We have always called this "Dave's Chili" after the long-time friend and coworker
    that created it.

    I make my chili from just eyeballing the amounts and to taste, but I will try to estimate it as best possible:

    2 lbs elk burger
    1 small onion diced
    1 large (28 oz) can of crushed tomatoes
    1 small can diced mild green chilies
    1 bottle of beer (or water)
    3 TBL Chili powder
    1 1/2 TBL Ground Cumin
    1 TBL Garlic Powder
    Salt to taste
    Add heat to taste with chopped jalapeno peppers
    1 can of beans optional
    1 can of diced tomatoes optional

    Brown burger with diced onions and diced jalapeno until done, place in a pot and add all other ingredients (adjust for taste), heat until hot. I don't like beans in my chili, but adding can of beans is fine, so is a can of diced tomatoes for more texture.
