This time of year I have a lot of venison on hand and try to find tasty ways to serve it besides stewed in the crock pot. You can make this with regular ground beef, turkey burger, sausage, or even omit meat for a vegetarian variety. If possible find some hot and spicy venison sausage, you’ll thank me.
- 1 pound of ground venison – browned
- 1 large onion – diced
- 4 garlic cloves – minced
- 1 chorizo – casing removed and diced
- 2 large sweet potatoes (yams) – diced
- 2 cans of beans (any variety) – not drained
- 1 can of chick peas (garbanzo) – not drained
- 1 can of diced tomatoes – don’t you dare drain it
- 10 minutes to prep
- 30-60 minutes to cook
- Serves 6-8
