"Why would anyone even attempt to make venison chili with canned chili? That is a huge cheat since chili is so simple to make."

"This recipe was so good that my 3 children ate every last bite. I made it again the next night and doubled the recipe. I served it as recommended over a bed of rice. It is a beautiful dish. The next night I served it over egg noodles. I packed school lunches for two of the children the following day and put the rice and two spoonfuls of the chili on a large tortilla and made a burrito for them. They loved it also. This recipe will definitely be a family favorite. Thank you for sharing it."
