Do you love Wendy's Chili? Here's a knockoff recipe that tastes surprisingly identical. Now all I need is the recipe for fries to dip in it...
Prep: 3 hours
Yield: 12+ servings
2 lbs ground beef
1 (29 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (29 ounce) can kidney beans (with liquid)
1 (29 ounce) can pinto beans (with liquid)
1 cup diced onions (approx 1 medium onion)
1/2 cup diced green chili peppers (approx 2 chilies)
1/4 cup diced celery (approx 1 stalk)
3 medium tomatoes chopped
2-3 teaspoons cumin powder
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups water
Brown ground beef and drain off fat.
Combine all ingredients in a large pot.
Bring to a simmer and cook, 2-3 hours, stirring frequently (although not constantly).
Tips & Tricks:
Can be made in a crock pot to skip the stirring. You can use dried beans if you soak them overnight & boil in water for 30 minutes prior to making, then cook in the crock pot on low heat all day.
