    Very good! It does taste just like Wendy's. Love the tomato flavor and crunchy onions. This isn't spicy as it is, but perfect with some Tabasco added to your serving bowl!

    I also found this recipe on copykat.com. I think it tastes terrific. Although I don't follow it exactly, I use a small can of tomato sauce instead of tomato puree, I hate red beans and green peppers so sometimes I use a couple handfuls of macaroni in its place. I use between 1/8 -1/4 cup of chili powder and usually add more the next day after reheating. I skip the cayenne pepper. But the other ingredients I used as instructed. At first I was leery about using that much chili powder but its not really that hot. This chili gets better and better the more its reheated up, it freezes great and deserves a 5 star. I love the cumin in it. Never had cumin before now I use it a lot. I do not serve this over rice.
