    Wendy's® Famous Chili


    1 pound ground chuck
    1 15-ounce can of diced tomatoes (liquid included)
    1 15-ounce can of red kidney beans (liquid drained)
    1 15-ounce can of pinto beans (liquid drained)
    1 8-ounce can Hunt's® tomato sauce
    1/2 medium white onion, diced
    1 4-ounce can diced green chilies (with liquid)
    2 Tablespoons chopped celery
    2 Tablespoons chili powder
    1/2 Tablespoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 cup water

    Preparing Wendy's® Chili:

    1. Brown the ground chuck over medium heat, breaking into small pieces with the spatula. Add a dash of salt and pepper while cooking.

    2. Empty the cooked meat into a spaghetti strainer, and rinse well under very hot water. This removes the bulk of the fat.

    3. Transfer the beef into a dutch oven, and add the remaining ingredients. Stir together to combine thoroughly.

    4. Over medium heat, bring to a simmer. Reduce the burner to low, and continue simmering 50-60 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    5. Serve hot! (with saltine crackers on the side)

    Makes about six 12 ounce servings, or six 99¢ value sized servings.

    Be sure to cover and refrigerate leftovers. Microwave leftovers on high for about 2-3 minutes (per serving) The microwaved letovers are almost even a
    better clone of Wendy's® Chili.

    Thanks so much!!! This is my DHs favorite chili. Although I've tried often, I could never get close.

    I haven't visited this board lately (just too busy). I should have known that you would have this recipe.

    I'm not sure I've ever had Wendy's chilli, but I do like chili and this sounds like a good one. Thanks Pumba!
