If you're new to cooking with venison, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Be sure to trim any silver skin or fat before cooking the venison.
  • Cook the venison to an internal temperature of 160°F to ensure that it's safe to eat.
  • Ground venison is leaner than ground beef, so it may require a little more oil or liquid to prevent it from sticking to the pan.

For the best flavor, use fresh spices and herbs rather than dried. If you don't have fresh on hand, you can use dried, but you may need to adjust the amount to get the same level of flavor. And finally, don't be afraid to make this recipe your own by adding or subtracting ingredients to suit your taste. That's the beauty of chili - it's a versatile dish that can be customized to your liking. Happy cooking!
