Venison Chili is a great low fat, healthy recipe!

Venison Chili is such a healthy recipe to serve your family. My family loves to hunt and with hunting comes lots of deer meat. Deer meat is so low in fat that sometimes it can be hard to cook with but when you make it in a chili or soup it is quite easy. So, first pin all this amazing recipe.  Second, send out your hunter! Finally, you will have the recipe you have have been looking for!

My husband and son keep my freezer full of deer steaks, burger, and jerky!  This is the first pot of Venison Chili we have made this year and it is delicious. Don’t you love recipes that are handed down generation to generation? This recipe is sure to please your hunter.  It is nice to have a recipe you never strayed from.  If it’s not broke don’t fix it, RIGHT?
