Venison Chili

• 3 lbs. ground venison
• 3 tablespoons cooking oil
• 2 medium onions chopped
• 1 green bell pepper chopped
• One teaspoon crushed garlic
• 48 ounces stewed tomatoes or four 10 ounce cans of Rotel Chili Fixin’s

• ¼ cup red pepper flakes

Brown three pounds of ground venison in 3 tablespoons cooking oil, drain and remove. In remaining oil sauté two medium chopped onions, one chopped bell pepper and one teaspoon crushed garlic. ( I use the little jar from the refrigerator section.) Combine meat and sautéed veggies in a large pot or Dutch oven with forty-eight ounces of stewed tomatoes, one can of chopped green chilies and two cups of water. Nothing left but the easy part. Add ½ cup chili powder, one tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon cayenne and a ½ teaspoon cumin. Bring your chili to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for a couple hours until your meat is tender and the flavors have blended. Salt and pepper to taste before serving.

Cream of Crawfish Soup

•1 pound peeled crawfish tails
•½ bunch green onions, coarsely chopped
•½ cup grated onion
•½ cup or one stick of butter
•½ cup flour
•2 cups chicken stock
•2 cups half-and-half
•2 cups heavy cream
•2 teaspoons red pepper
•2 teaspoons garlic powder
•2 teaspoons onion powder

Ground one pound of peeled crawfish tails with ½ bunch green onions in your food processor. Take a large heavy saucepan and sauté a half-cup of grated onion in a stick of butter for about five minutes. Next, add ½ cup flour, mix well and cook for two minutes or until thickened before stirring in two cups of heated chicken stock. Simmer for another five minutes, stirring constantly before adding your crawfish and green onion mixture. You’re about done! Once your soup base has simmered about ten minutes, add 2 cups of half and half and two cups of heavy cream. Simmer another five minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with 2 teaspoons each of red pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder before ladling into individual soup bowls! We got about six nice size servings out of this recipe. Oh, and we enjoyed it with crackers. A good French Bread would be great with it as well.
