Fast Venison Chili

You can roast your peppers on a barbecue, under a broiler or just char them in a very hot pan with a little oil. Once charred, place the peppers in a bag and let rest for 10 – 15 minutes before removing charred skin. Try replacing the chile powder, cumin and oregano flakes with Hi Mountain Cajun Campfire Western Seasoning – just for a little extra kick.
