• 1 lb. python or rattlesnake meat
  • 1 28 oz. can chili beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz. can tomato paste
  • 1 15 oz. can of yellow corn, drained
  • 1 small white onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups of water


  1. If you haven’t already, debone the snake. If you have extra time, you can make this easier by simmering the meat first in water with the juice from 1 lemon for an hour. This will help separate the meat from the bones.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, including the deboned snake, into a large pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Once boiling reduce heat to low and maintain a simmer for 2 hours.
  4. After 2 hours spoon into a bowl and enjoy!
