    Thought I'd share my recipe for deer chili.
    It's a good ern.

    1 pound deer burger
    1 large red onion
    1 Tbs. - Bacon Grease

    Cut up the onion, put it in a big pot. Add the bacon grease and cook on high till the onions are limp. Add the burger and cook till well done.

    Next, mix these spices together in a small bowl:
    5 Tbs. - Chili Powder
    2 Tsp. - Cayenne Pepper
    2 Tsp. - Paprika
    2 Tsp. - Cumin
    2 Tsp. - Ground Oregano
    2 Tsp. - Minced Garlic (The real stuff, not powder)
    2 Tsp. - Salt

    Pour over cooked meat and stir till blended well.

    Next add:
    1 - 8 oz. can Tomato Sauce
    1 - 12 oz. can Kidney Beans
    1 - 4 oz. can Green Chili's
    1 - 10 oz. can Rotel
    1 - 10 oz. can water (use rotel can)

    Stir it up good and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook on low for 1 hour or more, stirring every 20 minutes.

    Glad you liked it! The Bacon grease, and the green chilies kind of make it special. And I NEVER use those pre-made seasoning packets! Chili has to be made with love & care!

    Some of my group doesn't like beans so I use a can of refried beans to thicken it up, and some of my canned salsa and rotel. I think I MUST try the onion/bacon grease thing and your spices. Your whole recipe sounds great.

    I tried this chilli last night. I was a little sceptical at first because of a few ingredients that I usually use not being in there but I decided to give a go anyway as-is. Man I was not let down. That's one good chilli recipie.

    Thanks for posting it!
