  1. Begin by heating the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and peppers and cook until the onions start to brown on the edges, about 5-7 minutes. Then, add the venison and brown. 
  3. Once the venison is browned add the ground venison mixture and all remaining ingredients into your slow cooker for 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high. Be sure to cover the chili fully with a lid so all of the liquid doesn’t evaporate. 
  4. Ladle up generous portions, top with your favorite chili toppings, and serve.
