This Venison Chili recipe was given to me by my sister-in-law, Helen, who is a wonderful cook. She always has delicious recipes that she prepares and this is one of them. You will need ground venison, onion, tomato paste. Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilies and spices. I have found that Rotel tomatoes & green chilies taste good in just about anything, except desserts! This is easy to make and freezes well. Serve with cornbread, cracker or fresh baked homemade bread. Top with chopped onion and cheddar cheese if desire.
