Spicy Three Bean Venison Chili

Spicy Three Bean Venison Chili

I almost messed up, ya’ll.  This chili recipe was soooo close to being a two-bean venison chili, but then I remembered the third bean. The sneaky cans of Bean #3 hanging out in the back of the pantry. This is the kind of thing that keeps food bloggers up at night.

I mean, google two-bean chili. Go ahead.

Now google three-bean chili. TEN TIMES AS MANY PEOPLE WANT THREE BEANS IN THEIR CHILI. So there ya go. Bean math.

But the star of this rich, red venison chili is not the beans. It is the venison. Tender and lean chunks of last year’s deer slow simmered in chili spices. This is why the good Lord gave us spoons.

And bowls.

And deer.

And…beans.
