Easy Texas Chili:

1-2 lbs of venison burger
2 medium onions chopped
olive oil
1 smoked ham hock (optional)
3 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp red pepper flake
3 16oz cans of whole tomatoes (quartered) & juice
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp cumin

In a skillet with a little bit of olive oil, brown meat and cook onions. Place the meat and onion mixture into a crock pot. Add remaining ingredients to the crock pot.  Cook on high for 2-3 hours until bubbly.  Switch heat to low setting and cook for another 3-4 hours or even longer if you need to fit into your schedule  .  Remove ham hock prior to serving if desired.

Serve over rice with compliments of sour cream, shredded cheese, nacho chips.

This is another one of those dishes that taste even better if you cool it, store in the refrigerator, then heat and serve a day or two later.
