2Tlb. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin (optional)
1 cup Ketchup
2 cups water
In pan, brown venison and drain any grease.
Add chili powder and cumin if desired. (Cumin gives it a bit of smoky flavor 1/2 tsp will only give a hint of smoky flavor. If you want a lot add 1tsp.) Stir well and add ketchup and water.
Blend all ingredients well and bring to a boil. Simmer on low until your preference of how juicy or dry you want chili. It should take from 30 to 45 mins. simmering on low depending on your stove.
Also, at this point you can put it in a crock pot if you would like too. I do if I am cooking it for a cookout, family gathering or plan to take it somewhere so I can just plug it in when I get there to make sure it stays warm.
Note: You can always add a little more water if it gets to dry and heat it back up…
