  • Heat olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the mushrooms, and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Stir in onion and garlic, cook until the onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the green and red peppers, red chile pepper, and jalapeno; cook until softened, then add to Dutch oven.

  • Stir in tomato paste, tomato sauce, black beans, diced tomatoes, and water. Season with chili powder, paprika, cayenne, and oregano. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the venison pieces are tender, about 2 hours.

  • Season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in parsley before serving. To serve, sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese.

The original recipe was much spicier. Allrecipes changed my original recipe. I used baby portabella mushrooms more chili powder more paprika more garlic and sweet italian sausage. I also did not use the liquid with canned diced tomatoes I like my chili thick not runny. Thank you for the great reviews!! Read More

The recipe was good but I thought it needed more spice. I added several tablespoons of Tabasco Chipolte sauce. I also added canned and rinsed red kidney and white navy beans. I thought it turned out very good. Men at a church wild game feast ate it all so it must have been good. Read More

Didn't have any Italian sausage so spiced up some breakfast sausage w/ no problems. Also added another pound of ground venison; it was a little too saucy. Made for a friend watching her diet and she loved it! Read More
