Slow Cooker Venison Chili Recipe





I had to give my husband the credit of thinking this one up. This was a great idea to use this meat in my chili recipe.  Venison stew meat is hardier cut and needs slow cooking to make tender so this was the perfect recipe for using the stew venison meat. We try to making it several different ways since we have a whole freezer full of venison . This was an awesome idea. Thanks honey!  It came out fantastic and great for leftovers too on nacho's!  I left mine plain and poured some over a tossed salad but he smothered his with shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled some tortilla on his.
Either way you want to serve this it came out delicious!
