I used to make this all of the time and then lost the recipe. I finally found after the move to FL while emptying out the gazillion boxes of books.

I haven't Wendy's Chili so I can't compare but I really enjoyed this! I made it just as is and it was very good. Kind of a cross between coney dog sauce and chili.

  3. Drain well.
  4. Using a blender, process the can of onion soup with 1/2 of the ground beef mixture.
  5. Blend until it looks like cement mortar.

  7. Add chili powder, cumin, black pepper, cocoa powder, cans of kidney beans, tomato paste, tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and V-8 juice.
