Venison Chili: A Hunter's Feast with a All-Natural Spicy Twist

Venison Chili: A Hunter's Feast with a All-Natural Spicy Twist

We freaking love wild game. Both the hunting and the eating. We know after a successful hunt you deserve a meal that's as satisfying and hearty as your time in the woods.

Our venison chili recipe is designed to complement the clean, natural taste of your hard-earned game with a bold flavor profile that's just as impressive. We’re also taking a hard stance again beans and veggies in this chili. Not this time, Mom, you can keep your vegetables. We’re here for the meat and only the meat. Why spoil that delicious venison with rabbit food? We're also swapping out beans for bacon. Yeah, you read that right.

Enough talk, let’s get into it…

The Ammo

  • 6 strips of bacon (oh yeah!)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 lbs ground venison (or beef, if you don’t have venison)
  • A generous shake of Tacticalories Leatherhead Seasoning (don’t be shy)
  • Two 4oz cans of tomato sauce
  • Two cups of beef broth
  • Two tablespoons of hot honey for a sweet heat twist (the flavor cheat code)
  • Optional: CABIN SMOKE Liquid Smoke

The Recipe
Backcountry Jimmy’s Adirondack Buck Chili:
1. Sauté the bacon and onion in the pot.
2. Drain the oil, brown the venison in the same pot.
3. Once browned, season liberally with Tacticalories Leatherhead Chili seasoning.
4. Mix in tomato sauce and beef broth for a rich base.
5. Stir in hot honey for that perfect balance of sweet and spicy -this is the cheat code ingredient.
6. For the final kicker- blend with an immersion blender for a smooth, unified chili.

Don't panic if you don’t have an immersion blender, but it does take it the next level. So, probably go buy one and thank us later.

Your wild game deserves wild flavor because the effort that goes into securing that meat ain’t a walk in the park. Each ingredient in this chili is selected with purpose to elevate your venison to its fullest potential, ensuring that your hard-earned harvest is paired with the best flavors possible.

So light up the stove and get ready for a veni-chili that's as ambitious and adventurous as you are.

See you in the stand!
