Tennessee Pride Country Chili

My friend, Heidi, gave us a bunch of deer meat a few weeks ago. We have been putting deer in everything, so in this recipe I subbed the ground beef with ground deer. Also, we're in lame New York and do not get Tennessee Pride sausage, so I just used Jimmy Dean and cried about how much I missed Tennessee. Although right now, I'm in Tennessee on vacation, but at the time I made it...I was in NY. But I digress...this was one of the very best chilis I've had. We used the spicy sausage to add more heat. It was great! 

What you need:
  • 1 lb. Tennessee Pride country sausage (mild or hot)
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes
  • 2 cans (16 oz. each) red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup water
  1. Cook sausage, ground beef, onions, green bell, and garlic in a Dutch oven until meat is browned and veggies are tender; drain if needed.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
