    1 1/2 pounds cubed elk steak
    1 can stewed tomatoes
    2 cups water
    1/3 cup olive oil
    3 cloves garlic
    1 large onion, chopped
    1tsp ground cummin
    1/2tsp sage
    1tblspn hatch chili powder
    1 tspn salt
    2 bay leaves
    1 tblspn italian seasoning

    (Yes you can use beef. If using beef, do not use the olive oil, use olive oil with elk or venison)
    Do not brown meat, combine all ingredients above in large soup pot and boil for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Skim off about half the oil and discard.

    Add:
    2 cans stewed tomatoes
    1 can tomatillos
    3 cans beans(your choice of kind)
    {I like 1 can black beans and 1 can each light and dark kidney beans}
    (I make it mild because the wife won't eat hot, I just add diced raw serano or jalepeno peppers to my bowl. )
    If you want it hot, add 1/4 pound chopped serano or jalepeno peppers, or your favorites at this point.

    bring everything to a boil and simmer for 2-3 hours

    let cool for 1/2 hour before serving.
    Top with chopped onions, cheese or your other favorite toppings.


    Break out the tortillas and enjoy.

    Elk is better than beef, best meat around.

    And, I am sure you have heard the term 'hung like an elk' ?

    Is it safe to assume that you make your chili with elk dick?

    Plus, it comes with it's own cream sauce.

    can you use the same recipe but substitute shriners for the elk?

    With shriners, as with all short fatty meat, you don't need to add olive oil like you do with tall lean meat like elk.
