"This meaty chili is nicely seasoned and has gotten many 'very good' responses from my friends," says Gary Urness of Kenyon, Minnesota. "It's easy to make."

    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.
