This is a chili I have been making for years. I have made it with all kinds of ground meats (beef, turkey, deer, elk) but I prefer ground moose. The longer you let it simmer the better as the flavors will blend. Top with shredded cheddar cheese. Serve with fresh baked cornbread and sweet honey butter. Men LOVE this meal!

I love this recipe I took it from a chili recipe my dad made when I was a child and added my own touch to it. Very easy to do. Make it in the morning and have it that night for dinner. Read More

We're out in Texas so we used ground deer and also threw in some deer sausage. One note: The seasonings tasted better when we added them toward the end - we added ours about 1 hour before chili was done. Read More

Best chili I've EVER made!!! Only change = I use 2 pounds of either ground deer or ground moose and minus the bell pepper. RAVES every time I make this meal!!! Little bit of shredded cheddar or sour cream or chives or onions on top...whatever your fancy!! IT'S TOTALLY "DA BOMB"!! Read More

I altered this recipe to suit what I had on hand and it turned out great!! I used 1 10 oz can Rotel a 12 oz can of diced tomatoes and an 8oz can of tomato sauce. I also replaced the canned beans with dried pinto & kidney beans that I cooked. Instead of using the slow cooker I made mine on the stove and simmered it for about 2 hours. The end result was out of this world!! Read More

Wonderful with ground buffalo. But it makes too much with too litte meat. I use 1 lb of ground buffalo or ground turkey and ONE can of all the beans and half the bell pepper and onion Read More

GREAT MOOSE CHILI - but I had to make just a few adjustments. I don't like to use processed seasons so I added my own - Cumin Cayenne Pepper and Chili powder were my main ones. I also used only kidney beans except for the chili beans which were black beans. I used Rotel instead of the can of tomatoes. and I added a can of tomato sauce. I was amazed the olives were so good in the chili! Best chili ever! I also made gluten free cornbread to go with it! Read More
