Hello divas! I hope that all is going well for you this week. My week is a bit busy as I am getting ready to head to Savannah this weekend but otherwise it’s pretty darn good. I am loving that fall has arrived – well in the mornings anyway.
I look forward to more cooler weather coming this weekend and into next week. One of my favorite things about fall is that I can make some of my favorite dishes in the crockpot. As a southern girl born and bred, I am a big fan of chili. So today I am sharing another easy healthy recipe – my drunk deer chili.
I am a southern girl born and raised so if there is something I know, it is what makes a great bowl of chli. And there are so many kinds of chili to try out. Whether it is a veggie chili or one filled with lots of meat, it is a great option for a go-to, easy dinner. I especially love adding all kinds of veggies to my chili recipes as it is a great way to “sneak” them into my daily nutrition.
For this recipe, I used venison as my meat of choice. I love deer season since I have relatives who love to hunt and will give me some deer meat each year. This recipe, however, will taste just as good with ground beef or turkey. I also use a crockpot as it just makes life so much easier. You simply place all the ingredients into the crockpot in the morning and you have a complete meal ready when you get home from work.
