Baby Chili

Disclaimer: This is neither chili made from babies nor chili in small batches. It is chili for small children, most likely 10+ months. Just so there's no confusion.

Today as I was making Potluck Beans (recipe forthcoming), I was making only half the recipe, so I wanted to use the other half of everything for something else. Enter Baby Chili. (You can see the small pot of baby ingredients behind the large skillet of adult ingredients!)

1/2 lb ground venison
about 1/4 of an onion, diced
about 1/2 cup kidney beans, drained and rinsed
about 1/2 cup butter beans, drained and rinsed
garlic powder

As I cooked the venison, I threw in the onion. I did have to add water because venison makes no liquid when it's cooking. Near the end, I added both types of beans and let it simmer a few minutes. Then I added pepper and garlic powder (just a pinch of each) and mashed it with a potato masher.

Haven't tried this yet with Brianna because it just came off the stove - but I'm excited to see if she likes it!!
