How To Make wild boar chili

  • 1
    Prepare beans ahead of time in accordance with their packaging and place in medium-large crock-pot on high heat.
  • 2
    Warm large saucepan. Add wild boar meat that has been roughly chopped and brown thoroughly. Remove meat and add to crock-pot, reserving grease.
  • 3
    Toss first four ingredients into boar meat grease (half the grease if using beef) and sweat until onions are opaque.
  • 4
    Add Garlic, spices and Cilantro and allow to saute 2-3 more minutes. Throw it all in the crock-pot + tomatoes. Spice tip: Start with the recommended amount and adjust as it works in the crock-pot.

    You have a couple of options here. Leave crock on high, stirring often and enjoy in an hour, or Turn on medium (low if you have two settings) and walk away. Let cook a minimum of 3 hours. The longer it cooks, the bolder the flavors.
