Well I have to agree with my mom…there are a lot of reasons besides watching football to get together for the Super Bowl. I do like football, but I prefer college over NFL so I really don’t have a team to root for. I love to cook and entertain and can’t wait to have a place big enough to have more get togethers!
I decided to try out some hearty recipes for entertaining as well. My menu includes:
GW’s Deer Chili
Black Bean Salsa
Sausage Stars (not in the cook book)
I am thankful for guy friends who like to hunt otherwise I’m not sure where I would find deer meat!
GW’s Deer Chili
By Katy Davis
1 lb. ground venison
1 link venison sausage
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 c. chopped onion
2 jalapenos , minced
1/2 c chopped red and green bell peppers
1 c. smashed tomatoes (or diced)
2 tsp. chopped garlic
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
4 c chicken stock
Heat the oil in a large heavy pan over medium/high heat. Add the ground venison and brown. Add chili powder, cumin, salt and cayenne pepper. Break up the meat. When meat is browned and seasonings well mixed, add the onions, bell peppers and cook until vegetables are soft. Add the tomatoes, cilantro, jalapenos and garlic. Cool for 5 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer. Cook uncovered until the mixture begins to thicken, approximately 45 minutes .
I only had the ground venison and that was enough meat…I also added alot of extra cayenne pepper (my mom told you we love cayenne!) so it was spicy!
