Chili!

Happy Saturday Everyone! I am posting last nights dinner today! It is one of my families all time favorite dishes that I make. Venison Sweet Potato Chili! It is the perfect comfort meal. This recipe does not take all day to make either! All you need is about an hour and then you and everyone can indulge in one of Texas best dishes! I will not be posting any other recipes this weekend because I have a family affair Tonight out of town, and then tomorrow is Super Bowl sunday and I will not be home to cook, but don’t worry I will be eating left overs from this week and definitely plan on having Chili for my Super Bowl Sunday Dinner! Yummy! I can’t wait to see who wins the game! I hope everyone has a fun, blessed, and safe weekend!!

What you will need
2 sauté pans
1 large soup pot
2 pounds venison or grass fed beef
2 small sweet potatoes
2 jalopenos diced with or without the seeds (we use the seeds!)
onion diced
2 cans muir glen fire roasted tomatoes (one with green chilies one with garlic)
1 can hot diced green chilies (mild if you wish)
3 T cumin
2 T chili powder
2 t white pepper
1 t smoked paprika
1 t cayenne pepper (can omit this step if you want)
4 garlic cloves
2 T coconut oil
1/4 t salt
fresh cilantro chopped

in one sauté pan put your 2 T coconut oil, diced jalopeno, diced onion, cubed sweet potatoes, diced garlic and sauté until fork tender

in the other pan brown your meat with the seasoning. If you are only making the chili for a small family and you are only using 1 pound of meat just cut all of the seasoning in half as well as the potato and use one can instead of two for the tomatoes.

after you have browned the meat and seasoned it place it in the soup pot, pour in the two cans of tomatoes, green chilies, and your sweet potato mixture, cook on low for 10 minutes to let all the flavors meld together, chop your cilantro and mix in once done

scoop into a bowl and enjoy the yummy goodness!! 🙂 Enjoy!
