Wendy's Chili, Our Way

23 Comments

Wendys Chili Our Way

Chili is an easy dish to make, yet it tastes like it took all day to make it. This recipe does take 2 to 3 hours to cook, but it's a very easy process. As restaurant copycat recipes go, this version of Wendy's Chili, Our Way is bang-on! We swear, if you put it into one of those paper cups like they serve it in at Wendy's, you'd be hard-pressed to tell this was simply a restaurant copycat recipe.

This copycat Wendy's chili recipe is a terrific recipe for fall. It's full of beans, tomatoes, and ground beef. The whole pot was gone within minutes when we made it in our office - it's that good. The chili had a bit of kick to it but not too much, so it pleased everyone's palate. If you can't make it to Wendy's, know that you can make a version in your own kitchen that's just as good. Serve it up to your fellow football fans while watching the game or to your family for a cozy weeknight meal.

I'm not sure if it's exactly like Wendy's chili, but it's a pretty decent chili nevertheless. I prefer my chili with a little more spice.

Yum! It tasted just like the chili from Wendy's. I prefer a lot more veggies in mine though.

I'm not usually a huge chili fan, but this was delicious! Not too spicy at all, and just the right amount of meat. Perfect for a cool day!

I loved this chili recipe! It's the perfect way to warm up on a cool day. All of the ingredients blended together so nicely for a great chili taste. I usually don't like beans - but I loved them in this recipe!

I really enjoyed the flavor of this chili. It wasn't too hot but it did have a bit of a kick to it. It was the perfect lunch for a slightly chilly day in the office!

Very very similar to the classic Wendy's recipe! Perhaps not as sweet, but very comparable. YUM!

This was a really tasty classic chili recipe - the only thing I would change would be adding a bit of hot sauce, but that's only because I like my chili spicy!

I DO A LOT OF COOKING, I MEAN A LOT. I VERY OFTEN SEE "GREEN CHILES" AS AN INGREDIENT. WHAT IS A GREEN CHILE? THERE ARE A MILLION GREEN CHILES. IT CAN BEN ANYTHING FROM A GREEN BELL PEPPER, TO A SCOTCH BONNET. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT PEPPER THEY MEAN WHEN THEY SAY "GREEN CHILE.br /THANKS
