Deer Veggie Chili Mac


  • 1 lb of ground deer burger
  • 28 ounces of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 1/4 cup of elbow macaroni
  • 6 tsp of chili powder
  • 1 15 oz can of corn
  • 1 15 oz can of cut green beans
  • 1 15 oz can of sweet peas
  • 1 15 oz can of sliced carrots
  • 2 tsp of salt (optional)
  • 1 tsp of black pepper (optional)


  1. Brown the ground deer burger on medium-high heat and break it up as it fries. This should only take about 10 minutes. If you have any excess grease, drain it.
  2. Drain the liquids from all of the cans of veggies and add them to the deer burger. Then add all of the other ingredients.
  3. Let this slowly simmer for about 30 minutes or until the elbow macaroni is done.
  4. Remove it from the heat and let it set and cool for 5 minutes–if you can wait that long.

Here’s as idea. Put some in a bowl and sprinkle it with cheddar cheese or mozzarella cheese and let it melt while it’s cooling.

This is good with crackers, cornbread, or Jiffy corn muffins. It’s thick enough to eat it plain, which is the way I like it. If you want it thinner add water little by little and maybe some extra salt and chili powder.
