    I used to love Wendy’s Chili but don’t eat fast food anymore, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like chili – lol. Thank you for linking up with us at #WWDParty – have a wonderful weekend!

    Have to admit I was a little skeptical, but this is fantastic- and truly does taste like Wendy’s chilli! I put everything together, brought it to a boil and then put it into the crock pot for 4 hrs on low. Only addition I made was to add a can of mushrooms. Thanks for the recipe!

    Made this chili a few weeks ago, and about to make some more tonight. So easy and so yummy! I love Wendy’s chili and I love this chili! I’m so glad I can make it and get more than a cup! :) The first time I made it, it served 5 guys and 1 gal (myself) … my husband was having a boys night … and there were enough leftovers for about 3-4 more servings. I did serve it with corn chips and cheese so some of us made frito pie instead of having full bowls of chili. Tonight I will be doing the same, but for 8 people. I’m sure it’ll be plenty. Can’t wait to have more of it tonight! Thanks for the great recipe!

    Oh, and one other thing. I did add some corn starch to thicken it up a little. For me it was on the liquidy side, almost exactly like wendy’s chili, but I wanted something more thicker, so I dissolved a tablespoon of cornstarch in a tablespoon or two of water, and added it in at the end to thicken it up a little and that worked like a charm! I ended up adding 3 tablespoons of cornstarch total (and the water it was dissolved in) to get it to the thickness I wanted. Hope that’s helpful info for someone out there. :)

    I HOPE SOMEONE CAN REPLY TODAY…. I am a little confused on the ingredients. Is it calling for 2 cans (28oz each)of tomatoes, or 28oz total (14oz each)???
