Have a venison roast? Then you must try my Slow Cooker Venison Roast Recipe with Mushroom Bacon Gravy.
This Slow Cooker Venison Chili is my favorite way to use up venison! I use three different types of peppers; jalapeño, Anaheim, and yellow bell pepper. It is just the right amount of heat! I top the chili with cheddar cheese, green onions, and serve cornbread on the side.
We often have more venison than we know what to do with it, and when I run out I often buy ground venison from my butcher, they have it in the freezer case. This chili is requested by my husband often, we like to make this chili when we are RV camping too!
How to make Venison Chili:
You will need these ingredients:
- Ground venison, browned
- Salt and pepper
- Onion powder
- White onion
- Poblano or Anaheim pepper
- Yellow bell pepper
- Diced tomatoes
- Tomato paste
- Beef broth
- Black beans
- Chili seasoning mix
- Add everything to the slow cooker and stir.
- Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
- Stir and serve with toppings such as cheddar cheese, green onion and oyster crackers.
Can I add beer?
Yes! Add a 12 oz. can of beer instead of the beef broth, it will add depth of flavor to the chili. I often do this with beef chili too, it smells great while cooking.

Can I use a venison roast instead of
If you have cubed venison (stew meat) or a venison roast you need to use, you can use that in this recipe. Use 1-2 pounds of cubed venison or cut a small roast into cubes and cook as directed in the recipe card, though no need to brown the meat.
