      Very nice chili that is surprising like Wendy's. The chili powder used makes a lot of difference. I used HEB bulk San Antonio chili powder. For you guys who are not in Texas, San Antonio powder is "sweeter" with less pungency. The chili is "gentle" - my family likes it milder than I do. Personally, I like butt burning chili - this is not it. For those who want a kinder, gentler chili, this is really good.

      Had to make do with a small can of tomato paste in a quart of water & a can of diced tomato - what a wonderful recipe! We thought it was a good new addition to our chili stable. I did use a 1 pound bag of red kidney beans to the 2 lbs ground beef - so ours may have been "beanier". Only mildly spicy - good for folks who are not chiliheads but appreciate a balanced bowl of chili. After browning the meat & boiling then soaking the red beans I threw it all in the slow cooker for 4 hours on high. Served with eastern NC (sweet) cornbread - perfect. Thanks Molly 53 for a keeper recipe enjoyed by all.

      Thank you so much for this recipe! I live overseas now and missed Wendy's chili, and now I can have it whenever I want. It's fab.
