Not many fast food restaurants serve the classic western dish of chili, but Wendy’s does, and they serve a lot of it! Every time I go to my local Wendy’s, about every third person has some on their tray. And why shouldn’t they? It’s an amazing blend of beef, beans, tomatoes, and spices that come together and make a satisfying meal, from a fast food restaurant. Now you can make Copycat Wendy’s Chili at home, in your crock pot, for a great meal during the week or on the weekend and feed a crowd.
Making Wendy’s Chili
Chili always seems to start with a few common ingredients. Ground beef, beans, and tomatoes make the basis of just about every chili recipe I’ve ever read or made. What sets Copycat Wendy’s Chili apart is the other ingredients. Onion and green pepper, raw instead of sauteed with the beef, goes right in the crock pot to simmer the flavor into the mix. The seasoning is easy. A single packet of McCormick original chili spices gets stirred in before turning on the crock pot. Simple ingredients, but it makes an amazing chili that is just like Wendy’s Chili.
