    Venison, Sausage, and Black Bean Chili

    Venison's robustness makes this dish stand out. Use jalapeño-flavored or andouille chicken sausage to lend fire to the dish, or blunt the spice with mild goat cheese, or substitute sour cream.

    1/4 pound spicy chicken sausage
    Cooking spray
    2 cups chopped onion (about 2 medium)
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 pound boneless venison loin, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    1 cup chopped plum tomato (about 2 medium)
    1 cup water
    2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled goat cheese
    Jalapeño pepper slices (optional)

    1. Remove casings from sausage. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sausage, onion, and garlic to pan; sauté minutes or until onion is tender, stirring to crumble sausage. Add venison; cook 4 minutes or until venison is browned. Stir in tomato paste; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken broth and next 5 ingredients (through cumin), scraping pan to loosen browned bits; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour and 15 minutes or until venison is tender. Stir in black beans; cook 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Top each serving with crumbled goat cheese. Serve with jalapeño slices, if desired.

    Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup chili and 1 tablespoon crumbled goat cheese)
