WENDY'S CHILI Really close copy
I love Wendy's chili !!!
My friend sent me an e-cookbook of copycat recipes and this was one of them. I changed it up a little bit, and made the first batch. Almost exactly like the original. It's really does look and smell pretty darn close -- and is easy and economical. Treat your family to fast-food -- but you'll know exactly what's in it!

WENDY'S CHILI Really close copy Preparation
In a stockpot, over medium heat, brown the meat with a little salt and pepper. (Do NOT do next step if using Meat Substitute.)
Add water, just to cover by 1/2 an inch, and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse.
Return meat to pot medium heat and add the olive oil, celery, green peppers, red peppers, onions, chili powder, cumin, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.
Cook for one minute.
Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, and beans.
Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.
Makes approx ten 1-cup serving
I read about the original and someone said that to make it the closest to, use frozen diced onions and green peppers. Ever wanting to make things super easy, I do. They also said it was imperative to boil the meat after browning. So I do that, too
