• 2 to 3 pounds ground meat (elk, venison, squirrel, rabbit) • 1 large chopped onion • 4 pieces celery, chopped (almost a cup) • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes • 3 teaspoons garlic powder • 2 diced bell peppers (I keep some frozen and I use those) • 1/2 teaspoon cumin • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper (more or less to taste) • 1 teaspoon paprika • 1 (16 ounce) can peeled tomatoes, chopped • 1 can Mexican style beans, un-drained • 5 tablespoons (more or less) Williams Chili Mix
Start cooking meat in large pan with a little water (one cup). Add onion, celery and peppers. Then add other ingredients, except beans. Add beans in last 30 minutes cooking time. Cook slow for at least two hours, stirring to make sure it doesn't stick. May also be cooked in crockpot for a longer period of time. Make sure it has enough liquid; more water may be added.
