Wendy’s Knock Off Chili

I LOVE Wendy’s Chili.  I have a friend who had worked at Wendy’s and I’m not too crazy about how they make it.  So I searched and I came across this Wendy’s Knock off Chili and it is pretty darn close to Wendy’s Chili and this makes me happy happy happy!

When I have a reason to pull out my GIANT Tramontina 12 quart stock pot I make the Tim the Toolman Taylor caveman grunt


What I needed:
An electric can opener
A food chopper
A nice camera

What I had:
a very sharp knife
a manual can opener and my bicep
Refer to the blog where I got the recipe for nice pictures.

My changes to the recipe were very minimal:
I used 5 pounds of ground meat in my freezer which was:
2 pounds 94% lean ground beef
2 pounds 99% lean ground turkey breast
1 pound ground bison meat

I have also used ground venison. ANY combo of LEAN ground meat will do!

I added:
1 whole bunch of parsley roughly picked off the stems and roughly chopped.
A LOT more minced garlic like a ton more.  Hello, my name is Shannon and I am a garlicholic.
3 red bell peppers
4 green bell pepper (I could NOT bring myself to use all green…2 hours later…Burp! green bell pepper)

It freezes well in zip locks which makes the core of my being sing with joy. For my family of 5 I have 5 meals from one pot.  And all the people said AMEN!

I never claimed to be a photographer.
