Written By: Shantel Whitford

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 1lb of your favorite ground wild game meat (I love Moose)
  • 1 med onion diced
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2.5 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Cumin
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (15oz) can of diced tomatoes (with Juice)
  • 1 (16oz) can of Kidney Beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 (16oz) can of Pinto Beans (with juice)
  • 1 (15oz) Can of Tomato sauce


In a large pot saute wild game with onion and olive oil on medium heat. Once cooked add spices and all of the canned items. Bring to a boil and turn down to simmer for 20 minutes to allow time for spices to blend together. Remove from heat and serve with your favorite toppings.

One of my favorite things about fall is hunting season. I love to feed my family wild game! It is healthy and low in fat, and it serves as a healthy protein option in any recipe. The kids go crazy for this chili. In our house, we like to add lots of cheese, sour cream, and onions! It also goes great with frybread. One tip for cooking with wild game is to remember the fat content is usually lower than in commercially raised meats, so you will want to ensure you add a little more olive oil to prevent it from sticking or burning. Do you have a favorite wild game recipe? Please feel free to share it with us as one of our guest bloggers! We would love to hear from you!
