Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat; drain off fat.
  2. Using a fork, crumble the beef into pea size pieces.
  3. In a large pot, combine the beef plus all remaining ingredients, and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring every so often, for 2-3 hours.
  4. For spicier chili, add 1/2 teaspoons more black pepper. For much spicier chili, add 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and a tablespoon cayenne. (We like it hot, so I added 5-6 jalepeno peppers.
  5. Leftovers can be frozen for several months.

Wasn't exactly like Wendy's, but then again we did make a few changes throughout the recipe. This was the best chili recipe we've tried in a while and we will use this recipe again! Our most notable change was using two serrano peppers and that added a nice heat and flavor to the chili.
