Wendy's Chili is a warm and hearty fast food favorite. It's also super easy to whip up your own copycat version at home. Put everything together in a large soup pot and simmer for about 30 minutes. The flavor gets better the longer it simmers, and it even tastes great when reheated the next day. You can also freeze leftover chili. So whip up a big pot of chilli and you'll always have a meal to go.
Your family will love this exact copy of the original. The recipe is straightforward, just a great classic chili. The best part about making copycat versions of fast food favorites at home is that you can control the ingredients. Fast food is often high in fat and sodium, but this is where you can control the spices and adjust the amount of salt used in the recipe. For a lower-fat option, use lean ground beef and drain excess fat. Chili is also a great source of fiber since this recipe uses two types of beans.
The Wendy's version doesn't include the classic chili toppings; It's simply served with salt crackers for the crunch. However, if you love shredded cheese, chopped scallions, or a dollop of sour cream, those are also great toppings to add to your home version of Wendy's Chili.
