A hearty and well-flavoured chilli dish, made with minced venison and beans in a spicy, tequila-infused tomato sauce. Serve with rice, cornbread or over a jacket potato.
Lovely chilli. Def a typo with the chilli powder. I used one tablespoon of chilli powder, some chilli flakes and two fresh small chillis. I also added come chorizos and it worked out well. - 19 Apr 2014
Made this today and it was different in a really nice way - you really taste the tequila. I didn't however, add 4 TABLESPOONS of Chilli (not sure if this is a mistake or some sort of mild chilli powder?) I used 4 teaspoons and some fresh chilis and it had a good enough kick. I also added salt at the end as no seasoning mentioned in the recipe but i thought it needed it. - 03 Feb 2013
The is a FANTASTIC venison chili recipe!! I made some changes, but LOVED how it turned out. Used one white onion, 3 stalks of celery, a fresh serrano pepper minced (with seeds left in tact), a green pepper, added dried: cilantro, thyme, oregano, paprika, garlic granules, a dash of cinnamon, salt & pepper. I also used a small amount of agave syrup to mellow out the tomato acidity. Then I added 2 cans of diced tomatoes, a can of tomato paste & sauce & a can of chicken broth. For the beans I used 2 cans of great northern white beans, drained. I omitted the o.j., but we LOVED the addition of the tequila!! It's subtle, but you can taste it in the background -- yummy!!!
