Great recipe! My go to..why people have to be so rude is beyond me..IT IS Chili..Chili is made differently all over the country, and liked many different ways..if you don't like "Wendy" style Chili, why on Earth make the recipe and then leave a bad review?
Excellent recipe! Going to make it again and again. Chili is very diverse and everyone has there taste preference when it comes to chili. If you do not like the flavor of Wendys chili do not make this recipe thinking it's going to be different. And please do not offer your comments and rating. I rated this recipe based on the fact that I love Wendys chili and how close does this chili come to that flavor. Very close and the flavor perfect.... Is it Wendys? NO, you only get Wendys chili at Wendys! Is it a good rendition.. Oh yes..... And it's even better on day 2!!!! If you choose to review a recipe make sure you made the recipe as posted. Do not review a recipe if you changed it all up and then don't like. A less than 4 or 5 star review of a changed up recipe is a review of ones own poor cooking skills. Be real!!!
My entire family LOVED this chili and they never agree on anything. I didn't have the packets of chili seasoning so I used 1 rounded Tbs Cumin, 1 1/4 tsp salt, 1 1/4 Tbs Chili Powder, 1 tsp Oregano, 1 tsp basil. This will be my go to chili.
My 9yo, 7yo, and 5yo made supper for their grandparents last night. They decided to cook chili but it couldn't be too spicy for their grandparents. We selected this recipe and they cooked it with minimal support from me. Everyone enjoyed the chili and it did remind me of Wendy's chili (It would have been an almost perfect match if the kids had cut up the stewed tomatoes but they missed that step.) When we cuddled in bed last night, my 7yo son asked that I write a good review for this recipe. We will make it again.
Great, as written but easily tweaked to your preferences. To the person who said it isn't chili, look beyond that and rate it for great flavor. Over 90 percent of the reviews are excellent, maybe the southwest should lay off the hot sauce and try tasting food again.
I can't tell you how many chili recipes I've tried in the past. This is hands-down my favorite and will definitely be part of the "regular" meal planning rotation. Perfect for my busy-wife-and-mommy life! Great for the slow cooker - I browned the ground beef for about 8 or so minutes on the stove and dumped everything into the pot w/out sautéing anything else - super easy! Freezes perfectly, tastes even better the next day, feeds a crowd for company and potlucks. The only thing I'd suggest is to rinse your beans. The frothy stuff you see when rinsing is what causes the "musical" part to your postprandial experience so rinsing definitely cuts that down if it's ever been a concern for you. My husband likes his spicy so he will be adding more chili powder and cumin to his helping; if you like spicier chili you will need to do the same as the way it is written here gives you a mild, ever-so-slight kick. Or, when you purchase the chili seasonings packets, pick "medium" or "hot" (I chose the 30% less sodium, mild spice option). Love that it's also way more economical than running to the local food chain when I have a hankerin' for some of that famous chili =)
Made this recipe tonight. Customized it a bit by seasoning the ground meat before cooking, used Mexican Style stewed tomatoes, HOT McCormick Chili Seasoning, and RO*TEL with habanero for extra spice. Was delicious and will definitely make this recipe again.
Super good chili!! My 7 year old didn't believe I made it...he thought it was Wendy's chili! I did not have chili seasoning packets, so I used the approximate following measurements of spices: 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp salt, 2 1/2 TBS chili powder, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp basil, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. I also substituted 1 of the cans of stewed tomatoes for petite diced tomatoes and I blended the 2 cans of stewed tomatoes I did use in a blender first....scared my kids wouldn't like it if it was too chunky. LOVE THIS RECIPE - THANKS FOR SHARING!!!
OMG! this is not chili.........not sure what it is but it tastes like sweet celery and chili soup. It might do for hot dog sauce or possibly sloppy joes but don't try to pass this off as chili anywhere in the southwest Update: this recipe cannot be saved......just not chili in any way shape or form. Sorry
