    Recipe Introduction

    I love the Wendy's Chili! Low in points but so filling! This is a "cloned" version I found while doing a google search (my 2nd favorite website behind WWs)

    List of Ingredients

    1 pound Ground Sirloin (95% lean)

    1 c. chopped onion

    29-ounce can tomato sauce

    29-ounce can kidney beans (with liquid)

    29-ounce can pinto beans (with liquid)

    4-ounce can diced green chilis

    15-ounce can diced or stewed tomatoes (OR, 3 medium tomatoes, chopped)

    2 teaspoons ground cumin

    3 Tablespoons chili powder

    1 teaspoon black pepper

    2 teaspoons salt (optional)

    2 cups water


    Brown the ground beef and onion together, crumbling the beef as it cooks. Drain any fat.

    Combine the beef plus all remaining ingredients, and bring to a simmer.

    Cook uncovered, stirring every 15 minutes, for 2-3 hours.

    You can vary the amounts of the spices a bit, depending on your *heat* tolerance. We use the above measurements, plus 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes. You may also add chopped jalapeno peppers.
